As an object sinks in a fluid the buoyant force on it would remain the same.

The density of an object that sinks is greater than the density of the liquid in which it sinks.

If an object sinks in a fluid then it has a density greater than the fluid. This assumes the object is solid and not shaped like a boat.

Two answers to this: 1. If the object floats on the fluid, then it displaces its own mass in fluid. 2. If the object sinks, it will displace its own volume in fluid.

The object's density.If less than the density of the fluid, the object floats.If more than the density of the fluid, the object sinks.

I assume you mean when you put the object in a fluid. In this case the object sinks.

Archimedes' Principle relates the weight of a fluid displaced to the object placed in the fluid. If the weight of the fluid displaced is less than the object's weight ,then the object sinks. When the weights of the object and displaced water are equal, the object will float.

If the object's density is greater than the density of the fluid you put it in, then it sinks. If less, then it floats in that fluid.

yes, if its density is greater than the fluid it is immersed in, it sinks

An object will sink in a fluid medium if its density is greater than that of the medium.

The density of the object and the density of the fluid you drop it into. Buoyancy and pressure determine whether the object floats or sinks.

For the object to sink, the buoyant force has to be less than the weight. If the two forces are exactly equal, the object had neutral buoyancy.

Buoyancy and pressure determine whether the object floats or sinks.

It sinks because it is denser (weighs more per cubic inch) than the fluid in which it is immersed.

When the weight of any object surrounded by fluid is greater than the buoyant force on it, it sinks. (The buoyant force is just the weight of the fluid that would be in that space if the submerged object were not there.)

This is the name given to a bouyancey force. When an object diplaces a fluid, the amount of upthrust received is proportional to the volume of fluid displaced. When an object is floating then the upthrust is equal to the objects weight. When more people get on to a boat, the boat sinks further into the water, displacing more water so that the upthrust increases to balance the new weight. If an object sinks then the amount of upthrust it receives is less than the weight so the object falls. Just because it sinks doesn't mean that there is no upthrust, there is. This is why heavy objects appear lighter if you place them in water.

It is impossible to tell; whether an object floats or sinks depends on its density, not on its weight.

Because the density of ice is about 90% the density of sea water. A solid object sinks into a fluid until the fluid it displaces weighs the same as the entire object. That's what floating is. But if it is denser than water, it can never displace enough water to equal it's own weight, so it sinks entirely and falls to the bottom.

The upward bouyant force depends only on the weight of the displaced fluid. The NET force (object's weight - bouyant force) depends on the object's weight and will determine how fast it sinks.

When a warm fluid rises and a cool fluid sinks.

Density will determine if an object sinks because it explains how much matter is involved per unit of volume.

First of all its not if the object HAS more or less dense the object is more or less dense. the answer to your question is if the object sinks it is more dense the the liquid that it was put in.
