Kayaking and Rafting Fun Facts

Ever wonder how a small life jacket can keep your larger body afloat? An object displaces water, which pushes back and causes buoyancy (the more water you displace, the greater the force that pushes back). A life jacket is filled with a very light material, so it can displace a lot of water in comparison to its weight, meaning it will float high on top of the water and keep your head above the surface.

Next time you take a rafting trip, think about the physics involved: learn about how things float, the force and torque from the water and paddle, and the logistics of crossing running water. Most guides can also give you interesting facts about the river in which you are rafting, its history, and the surrounding wilderness. Don’t stop asking questions!
