What Is Buoyant Force?

Answer

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.

The buoyant force of air is similar to that of water. Both air and water are fluids, and things in them will be subject to the force of buoyancy. Let's look at air. Air is all around

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.
