What Is Buoyant Force?


When used in terms of physics, buoyancy is the upward acting force, caused by fluid pressure, that causes things to keep afloat rather than sink.

To Float
The equation for Buoyant force is Fb = (density)(volume)(acc.due to gravity).
100g = 0.1kg. 80g = 0.08kg. (0.1 - 0.08) x 9.8 = 0.196N. up. 9.8 = g. Nothing can "weigh" 100 or 80 grams. Grams are mass, and can only be weight when multiplied by g.
It basically means that an object can float.It can float beacuse its desity is less than the liquid or the water.

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.
