Unit 4: Better Body Composition Measurement

Learner Objectives

  1. Define mass, volume, density, weight and apparent weight.[1]
  2. Explain how mass and weight are related when near the surface of Earth and calculate one from the other.[1,2]
  3. Apply the concept of static equilibrium to determine the magnitude and direction of unknown forces.[3]
  4. Apply Archimedes principle to determine the buoyant force objects and decide if they will sink or float.[2]
  5. Determine density from mass and volume measurements and using hydrostatic weighing.[1,3,4]
