The conclusion of the experiment

In Conclusion, After performing the experiment,  therefore say that the force present which the fluid exerts on an object placed in it is equal to the weight of the fluid the object displaces. Archimedes’ principle also makes possible the determination of the density of an object that is so irregular in shape that its volume cannot be measured directly. If the object is weighed firstin air and then in water, the difference in weights will equal the weight of the volume of the water displaced, which is the same as the volume of the object. Thus the weight density of the object (weight divided by volume)can readily be determined. In very high precision weighing, both in air andin water, the displaced weight of both the air and water has to be accounted for in arriving at the correct volume and density
