Best Answer

buoyant force can be expressed as:

F(b) = W(air) - W(liquid) = d * g * v

where d is the density of the liquid, g is the acceleration of gravity and v is the volume of the immersed object (or the immersed part of the body if it floats). In this experiment the pan balances will compare masses in grams rather than weights. Since W=mg, the apparent change in mass when submerged is

m - m(apparent) = d(liquid) * v

What kind of buoyancy do submarines have when they are resting on the surfce of the ocean?

Positive Buoyancy. When submarine submerges, it initially uses negative buoyancy to submerge, and then levels out to neutral buoyancy.

How does the density of an object relate to its buoyancy in water?

The higher the density, the lower the buoyancy and the lower the density, the higher the buoyancy

What does buoyancy help with?

High buoyancy=easy to float

Does freshwater have buoyancy?

Yes, all fluids have buoyancy.

Is buoyancy a property of matter?

Buoyancy is a physical property.

Was buoyancy always called buoyancy?

yes, it is the same.

What was the father of buoyancy's name?

Archimedes is the father of Buoyancy

What are facts about buoyancy?

buoyancy has to deal with density, gravity, air, and water

How can buoyancy be demonstrated?

buoyancy can be demonstrated if you float something because buoyancy is when something floats for example a boat floating in water

How do you use buoyancy?

Buoyancy is what keeps a boat floating on the top of the water. Buoyancy is what makes a helium balloon float in the air.

How negative buoyancy affect a blimp?

When it has negative buoyancy, it descends (comes down) With positive buoyancy, it ascends (goes up)

Where does buoyancy occur?

Buoyancy occurs in fluids, which are gases and liquids. Hot air balloons are buoyant in air and ships are buoyant in water for examples. When the buoyancy of objects exceeds the weight of those objects, the objects rise. When the weight exceeds the buoyancy they sink. And when the buoyancy equals the weight of the objects they float.

Does buoyancy have any affect on density?

No. But density affects buoyancy.

When was buoyancy found?

The phenomena of buoyancy was first discovered by Archimedes.

What type of physical property is buoyancy?

Buoyancy is a physical property.

How does buoyancy occur?

buoyancy occurs if and object is floating or staying one place under water but not sinking sinking means 0% Buoyancy

Does buoyancy work in space?

No chance of buoyancy force in free space. Buoyancy is the force is due to the weight of the expelled fluid when an object comes into that fluid. But in free space no material is present and so no expelling. Hence no buoyancy.

How does salt reduce buoyancy in water?

Salt actually increases buoyancy.
