The submarine was an incredible technological innovation during the Civil War. It is important for a submarine to not float on top of the water or sink to the bottom. It must be “neutrally buoyant”. For this project students use a baby food jar as model of a submarine to find the mass to volume ratio that will float, sink and stay neutrally buoyant.
I can make a model of a submarine.
I can explain buoyancy.
I can explain density.
I can measure mass and volume.
