# What is the upward force exerted on a body by that into which it is immersed?

When a body is immersed in water , due to pressure difference between upper surface and lower surface of the body an unbalanced upward force acts on a body .

This unbalanced upward force is called Buoyancy force

### In what direction does a solid liquid exert force?

if you are asking in which direction does a liquid exert pressure on the object? then, liquid exert force in the upward direction which is called buoyancy. Brief description: when a body is partially or wholly immersed, it displaces the fluid. the displaced fluid had tendency to regain it's original position position. due to this, an upward force is exerted on the body by the displaced fluid. this upward force actiong on the the body…

### What is the Archimedes principal?

This is the Archimedes principle- when a body is totally submerged in the fluid completely or partially it experiences an upward force called buoyant force equal to the weight of the body. Buoyant force- buoyant force is the upward force exerted by the water on any body in the water. This buoyant force is perpendicular to the body in the liquid and is = to the product of pressure and area at that point.

### What is the buoyant force on the object?

Buoyant force is the upward force or thrust... Simply, consider immersing your hand inside a bucket of water.... The hand basically comes up (a little) if you just leave your hand... This is due to the buoyant force.... Basically that is the upward force/thrust that acts on any body that is immersed into a fluid....

### How can you calculate how far the boat sinks into the liquid?

The theory for this is called "Archimedes principle" and as the story goes that dear old Archie shouted "Eureka!", when he was taking a bath and figured it out. He wrote this down as a law and it goes like this: "The upward buoyant force exerted on a body immersed in a fluid is equal to the weight of the fluid the body displaces." The formula for this is: Apparentimmersedweight = weight - weight of…

### The upward buoyant force on a body immersed in a fluid is equal to what?

The upward buoyant force is simply equivalent to the weight of an amount of the fluid that would occupy the same space (same volume). The total upward force on the body, if freely floating, would be found by subtracting the downward force of the body's own weight. So for example, the buoyant force on a balloon filled with air submerged in water would be equal to the weight of the same-size balloon filled with water…

### Conclusion of Archimedes principle in lab?

The conclusion of the Archimedes principle is simply that the upward buoyant force that is experienced by a body immersed in a fluid, is equivalent to the weight of the fluid that the body displaces. This allows the volume of an object to be measured by measuring the volume of liquid it displaces after submerging. For any immersed object, the volume of the submerged portions equals the volume of fluid it displaces.

### What is the cause of upthrust in fluids?

we know that a liquid contained in a vessel exerts pressure at all points and in all directions. the pressure at a point in the liquid is same in all directions. it increases with depth inside the liquid. when a body, say a block, is immersed in a liquid, the pressure exerted upwards on the lower surface of the block(which is at a greater depth) is more than the pressure exerted downwards on the upper…

### Why does a body shows loss in weight when immersed in a liquid?

Very interesting question. As we immerse a body of mass M and having volume V is immersed in a liquid then a space of volume V is required for the immersing body. So that space of V is created by the equal volume of liquid vacating that space. Now this liquid should have gone above the initial level of liquid. This is known as expelled or displaced liquid. Its weight though acting down it wants…

### What is Archimedes' Principle?

Archimedes' Principle is the physical law of buoyancy, discovered by the ancient Greek mathematician and inventor Archimedes. It states that: A body immersed in a fluid (gas or liquid) is acted upon by an upward (buoyant) force, the magnitude of which is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the body. A few consequences and corollaries are: - The volume of displaced fluid is equal to the volume of an object fully immersed…
