Describe simple experiments to prove that solids occupy space
occupy space: solid-occupies space
‘A’-A measuring cylinder is filled with water to a particular mark- ‘A’.
‘B’-A piece of a wooden block- is immersed inside the measuring cylinder. The water level rises up.
‘C’-On removal of the block- the water level in the measuring cylinder falls down back to the mark- ‘A’
Conclusion: The block pushes the water out and occupies its space, hence all solids occupy space.
