Abstract

We offer data from a physical experiment in which the depth (from equilibrium value) of a container in water is measured 20 times per second and ask students to build a model of buoyancy based on Newton's Second Law of Motion and a Free Body Diagram. We ask students to estimate the parameters in their model and validate their model against the data.
