# The buoyant force on an object in a fluid is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the object This statement is?

stating the Archimedean Principle.

### How does the buoyant force in a submerged object compared with the weight of the water displaced?

The buoyant force is equal to the weight of water displaced. For a dense object, such as a coin or a bowling ball, the weight of the object is greater than the buoyant force and the object will sink if you let go of it. For a less dense object, such as an ice cube or a block of balsa wood, the buoyant force is greater than the weight and you can feel it pushing…

### What is the relationship between bouyant force and mass of displaced water?

The mass of the water displaced by an object times the acceleration gravity (commonly denoted as "g" and known to be 9.81 m/s2 on or near the surface of the Earth) equals the buoyant force. This is shown as: Fbuoy= mg Fbuoy is the buoyant force on the object m is the mass of the water displaced by the object g is the gravitational constant I think what you were really trying to ask is…

### What is the name of the Force that helps objects float?

Buoyant force. The buoyant force is the net upward force exerted by a fluid on a submerged or immersed object. Archimedes' principle states that the buoyant force is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced. An object will float in a fluid if the buoyant force on the object is equal to the object's weight.

### What contributes to the buoyant force acting on a ballon?

The buoyant force on an object in a liquid or gas has the same magnitude and the opposite direction of the weight of the liquid or gas displaced by the object. So basically, all you need to know is the weight of the displaced gas or liquid and the direction of gravity. The weight of the displaced gas or liquid can be derived from the density of the gas or liquid, the volume displaced, and…
