As long as any part of the object ... doesn't matter how much ... is below the surface

of the water ... doesn't matter how far ... there is buoyant force on it.

Yes there is. But the amount of upward buoyant force from the water cannot overcome the density of the object (which is obviously more dense than water, or the object wouldn't be at the bottom of the ocean.)

An iceberg floating in the ocean is affected by the water pressure and buoyant force on the basis of the Archimedes' principle. This dictates that a volume of a liquid must supported by the pressure of a surrounding liquid.&Ecirc;

Everything has weight, but when something is submerged in water, it experiences a buoyant force that counteracts weight. If this buoyant force is stronger than an object's weight, the object floats (conversely, if it is weaker, it sinks).To calculate weight, multiply the mass of an object (in kilograms) by g, Earth's gravitational field at its surface (approximately 9.81 m/s/s).To calculate buoyant force, multiply the density of the fluid in which the object is submersed (for water, this is approximately 1000 kg/m^3) by the volume of the object submersed (meaning ONLY the volume of the part that actually displaces fluid) by g.Both results will carry the SI unit of force "Newtons."

The salt in ocean water causes the water to be heavier, making the object more buoyant

The buoyant force on an object is equal to the weight of the liquid or gas displaced by the object.If you fully submerge a one cubic foot object in a liquid with a density of 62.4 pounds per cubic foot, which is the approximate density of fresh water, a buoyant force of 62.4 pounds will be acting on the object in an upward direction. If the object weighs more than 62.4 pounds it will sink. If it weighs less than 62.4 pounds it will sink into the liquid only until it displaces the volume of liquid whose weight equals the weight of the object. So if the object weighs 6.24 pounds, only one tenth of it will be below the surface. If you fully submerge a one cubic foot object in a liquid with a density of 64.1 pounds per cubic foot, which is the approximate density of ocean water near the surface, a buoyant force of 64.1 pounds will be acting on the object in an upward direction.

yes, it is the equivalent to the weight of the water displaced by the solid material of the boat.

Increasing the salinity of fresh water makes the water denser. The denser the water the less deeply an object will sink into the water. The very saltiness of the Dead Sea, means that people can float on the surface without effort. A ship, after displacing its weight, will float higher on the ocean, than it would if sailing on fresh water.

Not only from the ocean. EVERY object in the Universe attracts EVERY OTHER OBJECT, through a force called gravity. So, the ocean attracts us, but so does every other part of planet Earth.

why does the ocean is warmer than the bottom of the ocean

The bottom of the ocean is a dark color because light cannot penetrate through the bottom of the ocean.

what is wrong with this sentence "the bottom of the ocean is different from land masses because the ocean bottom is perfectly flat."

The bottom of the ocean that is slimy is called a biogenous bottom. Some scientists refer to this kind of ocean bottom as an ooze. They are the result of a dominance of calcium shells and siliceous shell pieces which dissolve at the bottom of the ocean.

Ocean Bottom Nightmare was created in 2007.

The land at the bottom of the sea or ocean can be the sea floor or ocean floor.

The duration of Ocean Force is 1800.0 seconds.

the echolaocation for measurnig the bottom of the ocean is the Doppler effect

An abyssal plain is a flat area on the ocean bottom

At the bottom of the ocean or the top of the ocean

The opposite of bottom would be the top, so the oceans surface is the opposite of the ocean floor/bottom.
