        Buoyancy Brainteasers: Boat-in-Pool Puzzler

        Put your understanding of the factors that influence buoyancy to the test in this interactive brainteaser from the NOVA Web site. You're sitting in a boat in a pool of water. With you in the boat is a large rock. You toss the rock overboard. Will the pool's water level rise, fall, or stay the same?

        This resource can be found on the NOVA: Voyage of Doom Web site.
