Buoyant force is an upward force in liquid that keeps things afloat. The higher the density an object has the less buoyancy it has making it more prone to sink in fluid.
Buoyant force comes from a fluid. It is an upward force that puts pressure on an object that is submerged in a fluid. It also causes more pressure to exist at the bottom of the fluid than at the top.
