Just to clarify, empty soda can is more likely to float, full soda can is more likely to sink. Greater weight, greater density, greater displacement.

Just to clarify; buoyancy has no effect on displacment. I dont understand why youd even argue this point. Tell ya what...go submerge both underwater and see what you get.

Same results.

Greater weight and density are irrelevant.

A balloon held underwater will displace more area/volume than a lead sinker.

I seriously think you misunderstand and confuse volume with density.

Im not even sure why im still arguing with you except that perhaps you will walk away a little wiser.

You are most definitely incorrect in your thinking on the matter. - 04-23-2019csr40
A cup of water will displace the identical space as a cup of mercury, steel, lead, gold etc. Differing weights and densities do not matter in regard to volume or displacement. Please reference scientific terms and definitions. I didnt make this stuff up.

And lastly...to measure any buoyant object ...you SINK it. A balloon. A submarine. Anything with buoyancy has to be sunk or fully submerged to find its displaced volume.

And to again dispell your previous assumption about a "floating" penis and accuracy: fill a glass container to the brim, then pour said water into a measuring cup. You'll find an accurate measurement of total displacement of the inside surface volume WITHOUT having the top enclosed.

Ie.....the fourth side of ANY object need not be fully submersed so long as it is completely level with the surface of the media to be displaced. - 04-23-2019csr40
The only way youre going to know...is by posted pictures. And i shall. This is nonsense.

As an engineering student who studies fluid mechanics I think I understand more than you so tell me if density and mass have nothing to do with volume then what is your imaginary version of the density equation? Cause I'm pretty sure it's density = mass/volume hence why the units of density are kg/m^3.

The mass of the object will affect water displacement up until it sinks. An empty can will float and therefore has less water displacement. Now if you filled the can half way and it sank then the water displacement would be equivalent to the full can.

You're welcome... - 04-23-2019csr40
I would flunk you. Sorry pal. Its just not worth arguing anymore.

The penis is most similar in shape to a cylinder; and the way to measure cylindrical volume is length times pi [approximately 3.14] times radius squared [base area times height]. Because it's difficult to obtain an accurate measure of penile radius, you'll have to use a slightly different approach to measuring penile volume.

Take your average girth measurement (measure your thickest and thinnest points and divide that number by 2). *Then divide that number by 6.28. Now square that number and multiply it by 3.14. Multiply that number by length. The resulting product will give you an approximation of your penile volume.

*Girth divided by pi roughly equals diameter, and diameter divided by 2 equals radius.

You can also see a visual representation of volumetric differentials in penis size using this nifty tool: Mr Average? - 04-23-2019djmotion
Says the idiot that thinks density and mass aren't relative to volume :bad: let me guess you think volume when measuring something in water is v=l*w*h??
