The ‘Submarine’ demonstrates the principles of buoyancy and Archimedes’ principle in an interactive way.

There is a model of a submarine in a closed tank of water. The submarine has two tanks, which can be filled with air independently. The more air there is in a tank, the lighter that part becomes and the higher it will float in the water. Releasing the air will cause that part to sink again. With this exhibit, you discover how a submarine can ascend and descend.

This principle is crucial for safety and efficiency in many maritime applications and in aviation. Additionally, the principle is also applied in the design and construction phases of oil platforms and in hydraulic engineering, for example in the design of bridges and dams.

How does a submarine descend and ascend?

  1. Press the green button. More air now enters the green chamber of the submarine.
  2. Press the red button. More air now enters the red chamber.
  3. What happens to the submarine?
