# Density Affect Buoyancy?

Density is mass of an object per unit volume. Buoyancy is the upward force exerted on object when it is placed in water. The more dense an object is, the less buoyant it becomes. There is less force exerted on more dense objects, as they are heavier than water and sink, which lessens the difference between the weight and the downward force - the buoyancy.

 Buoyancy is the factor of things that float or sink. Density is related because if the object has more density than water, it will sink. But, if it has less density than water, the http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_buoyancy_and_how...
 The denser a liquid, the more buoyancy it provides for an object. You will float higher when swimming in salt water than in fresh water because salt water is denser. http://www.askpedia.com/q/1C849/how_does_density_a...
 1. Determine the density of the fluid in which the object is submerged. Typically, this information will be given to you in the problem unless the fluid is water, in which case it http://www.ehow.com/how_8419890_solve-density-buoy...
