How does bouyancy affect matter?

It affects almost like density.

How does an objects volume affect buoyancy?

If the mass stays the same, then when an object gets larger, its density decreases. The larger density=the more bouyancy

How are density and bouyancy related?

The denser something is, the less easily it can float. So there is an inverse relationship between density and bouyancy.

How does the density of an object affect it as it sinks through water?

It's difficult to tell what you are asking. If the question is concerned with the bouyancy of the object, it will sink if it first displaces its volume of water, or will float if it first displaces its weight in water. Since density is mass per unit volume, objects with an average density greater than water will sink.

How does density effect bouyancy?

Buoyancy is the ability to float, so if the density is high, it'll hold up something. (see? FLOATING. BUOYANCY.)

Salt water effect bouyancy?

more salt means more density so more buoyancy.

What type of bouyancy force sinks?

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

How do scuba divers use density?

Divers use substances with high density (ie. lead) to help them sink, and substances with low density (ie. air) to help them float. That way they control their bouyancy.

How do scuba divers alter their average density to float?

Divers usually increase their density by wearing a weight belt (which contains lead weights). Some divers also rely, to a lesser degree, on using steel tanks, which are more dense than aluminum tanks. To decrease their density, divers put air into a Bouyancy Control Device (BCD). Some divers may also control bouyancy by putting air into a drysuit if they wear one. Whereas the increase in density created by the weightbelt is normally fixed, the positive bouyancy provided by the BCD can be varied throughout the dive. Usually a divers net density will decrease over the dive - a diver with a full scuba tank has about 4.5 lbs of extra weight (the weight of the gas) over a diver with an empty scuba tank.

What does bouyancy mean?

bouyancy- force of weight of gas fluids.

What is an example of bouyancy?

Why would you float in the dead sea without even trying?

It is very saline, rasing its density so effectively raising your bouyancy.

Does the amount of space affect its density?

volume does affect the density because the formula of density= mass/ volume

What is the definition of bouyancy?

Bouyancy determines whether an object sinks or floats.

What is the difference between density and average density?

"Average" density would imply that you have determined the density of several samples and calculated a mathematical average.
