If the water displaced by the object in it weighs more than the object itself, the object will have positive buoyancy and float. If the displaced water weighs less than the object in it, the object becomes negatively buoyant and will sink. If the displaced water and the object weigh the same, neutral buoyancy will be achieved, and no change in depth will occur.

# What is the definition of buoyancy?

Buoyancy is the relative tendency of an object to displace a fluid, that is to either float or sink in a liquid, or to rise or sink within a gas. Buoyancy is the upward for

# What is the buoyancy theory?

The buoyancy theory is known as Archimedes' Principal . It states that the bouyant force of an object depends on the weight of an object an the weight of the water it displac

# What is an example of buoyancy?

Upward push on an object by the liquid is in (to Float).

# The formula for buoyancy is?

Buoyancy=mass of fluid that would occupy the space of the object*acceleration due to gravity

# Who discovered the Law of Buoyancy?

Archimedes discovered the law of buoyancy.

# Was buoyancy always called buoyancy?

yes, it is the same.

# What is a submarines buoyancy?

A submarine has a variable buoyancy due to it's ballast tanks. When a submarine submerges, it fills it's ballast tanks with water which causes negative buoyancy. When a submar

# What is buoyancy measured in?

any unit of ordinary force

# What is buoyance force?

The upward thrust exerted on a body when the body is emerged into water.

# How do you spell buoyancy?

That is the correct spelling of the word "buoyancy" (lightness, ability to float).

# How does a boat have buoyancy?

It's hard to describe. The easiest way to say it, is that the weight is offset. Archimedes' principle sates that any FLOATING object displaces its own weight of fluid.

# What do you mean by buoyancy?

How well something floats in/on a liquid (usually water) or a gas (often the air).
In Pumpkins

# Why do pumpkins have buoyancy?

Every object that occupies space has buoyancy. In water, for example, every object is pushed up by a force equal to the weight of the water that would fill the space that

# What are facts about buoyancy?

In Physics

# What is the law of buoyancy Archimedes discovered?

When an object is placed in water or any other liquid, the liquid exerts a buoyant force equal to the volume of liquid displaced by the object.
