BUOYANCY: BOAT FILLED WITH BEANS (3 of 5)<br />
The greater the volume of an object, the more water it displaces & the greater the buoyant force on it. When the buoyant force equals the weight of the object, the object floats. Addition of more beans increases the weight of the boat causing it to drop.
