I am doing an expriment to try and calculate the differences in bouyancy based on temperature and addition of various salts. I was wondering if such a difference would be measurable with simple tools such as a homemade over-flow container and a spring scale. The salts I am testing are table salt, sea slat and epsom salt. I was also wondering how to calulate the weight of epsom salt when added to water. Because it is a hydrate I was confused as whether or not to include the hydrated water in the weight. When the salt is dissolvd in water I believe the hydrated water will be released and just add more water to the mixture. Any information woul be very appreciated. Thank You.
