Science Week 1: Buoyancy/upthrust Investigation:
Click on the picture below to watch the video from BBC Bitesize and then have a go at the experiment below. Don't forget to upload your photos, designs and videos to your Seesaw journal so that others can see how you have got on by clicking on the link here
In this easy science experiment you will be designing a tin foil boat that will hold the greatest number of pennies. Have a contest at home between your family members to see who can design a cargo boat that will hold the most pennies.
1. Cut up some tin foil approximately 12cm by 15cm
2. Design your boat shape and fold the tin foil into the shape remembering to fold up sides to stop any pennies falling overboard
3. Place your boat in the water and add pennies one by one. Be careful to spread them out rather than making a pile so the weight of the pennies is even.
4. Record how many pennies it took before the boat began to leak or it sunk. Be sure to dry the pennies after each test because remember water has weight!
5. Challenge people at home to make their own boats and test them. Did some boats take more pennies than others due to increased upthrust?
6. For an extra challenge have a go at testing your boats in different liquids. How about adding salt to the water? What effect does this have on the amount of buoyancy? Does it increase or decrease its effect?
So what's the science behind the experiment?
There are two main forces acting on the boats. Gravity is trying to pull the boat and pennies downwards towards the centre of the Earth. The force of buoyancy is a reaction force working against Gravity trying to push the boat upwards towards the surface of the water. The boat will continue to float as long as the force of buoyancy is bigger than the force of Gravity.
