Water Displacement Calculator
The Water Displacement Calculator is a tool used to calculate the volume of an irregularly shaped object by measuring the amount of water it displaces. It is based on the principle of Archimedes’ principle, which states that an object submerged in a fluid experiences an upward buoyant force equal to the weight of the fluid it displaces.
The formula for calculating the volume using water displacement is:
Volume = Initial water volume – Final water volume
If you have a solid object and you submerge it in a container filled with water, you measure the initial water volume. Then, when you place the object in the water, the water level rises, and you measure the final water volume. By subtracting the final water volume from the initial water volume, you can determine the volume of the object.
