This statement is not correct.

The weight of the water displaced by a body in it, is equal to the buoyancy

force that the body will experience.

In the case the body floats on the surface of water, the weight of the water

displaced by the body is equal to the weight of the body.

### How do you calculate the volume of an irregular 3D object if you know the surface area of one side and the height?

If the object is irregular you have no hope of calculating its volume from any known dimensions. The easiest way to find its volume is to fill a container full of a liquid (with which the object will not react). Submerge the object in the liquid and collect the liquid displaced. The volume of the displaced liquid, which should be easily measurable, will be the same as that of the object.

False

### How does Archimedes principle relate the buoyant force acting on an object and the volume of the fluid displaced by the object?

The buoyancy force is equal to the WEIGHT of the volume of fluid displaced by the object.

False - Apex

### What is the relationship between the volume of the water displaced by the object to the volume of the object?

They are exactly the same amount
