Relative density of a liquid by using Archimedes’ principle

Relative density of a liquid by using Archimedes’ principle

Using the same procedure as in the previous experiment, a sinker is weighed first in air, then in liquid, e.g., white spirit, and finally in water. The sinker is any convenient solid body, e.g., a piece of metal or a glass stopper. Since the same sinker is used in both liquids, the two apparent losses in weight will be the weights of equal volumes of spirit and water respectively. As in the previous experiment, if m}, m2, and m3 are the respective mass reading obtained in these three weighings, then
