Physics, Astronomy & Cosmology / How does being afloat in a boat affect the weight of a bowling ball?« on: 24/10/2010 12:00:52 »
I think I can answer that !
The principles behind the phenomenon are the laws of flotations.
The weight of the water that is expelled by the bowling ball is equal to the weight of the bowling ball.
I think that the volume of water displaced by the bowling ball, is equal to the volume of the bowling ball.
Not the weight!
Unless the bowling ball was made of water.
The amount of weight lost by the bowling bowl is equal to the weight of the volume of water that the bowling ball displaces.
