Hydrostatic Equilibrium and Buoyancy - Lesson 2

New Year's Eve celebrations often involve fireworks and, in some parts of the world, flying lanterns —  a lot of them!


But how do those lanterns fly? Buoyancy, that's the answer! Let's analyze how buoyancy is generated and how it is connected to hydrostatic equilibrium in this lecture.
