What Is a Buoyant Force?
The buoyant force is the upward force exerted on an object wholly or partly immersed in a fluid. This upward force is also called Upthrust. Due to the buoyant force, a body submerged partially or fully in a fluid appears to lose its weight, i.e. appears to be lighter. The following factors affect buoyant force: the density of the fluid, the volume of the fluid displaced, the local acceleration due to gravity. An object whose density is greater than that of the fluid in which it is submerged tends to sink. If the object is either less dense than the liquid or is shaped appropriately (as in a boat), the force can keep the object afloat. In terms of relative density, if the relative density is less than one, it floats in water and substances with a relative density greater than one sink in water.
How to Calculate Bottom Force on Plate?
Bottom Force on Plate calculator uses Bottom Force = Density of Fluid*[g]*(Distance of Top Edge from Free Surface+Vertical Distance of Point from Free Surface)*Area of Surface to calculate the Bottom Force, The Bottom Force on Plate formula is defined as the function of the density of the fluid, gravitational acceleration, the distance of the top edge from the free surface, the Vertical Distance of the Point from the Free Surface, and the Area of the Surface. It is a common experience that an object feels lighter and weighs less in a liquid than it does in air. This can be demonstrated easily by weighing a heavy object in water with a waterproof spring scale. Also, objects made of wood or other light materials float on water. These and other observations suggest that a fluid exerts an upward force on a body immersed in it. This force that tends to lift the body is called the buoyant force. The buoyant force is caused by the increase of pressure with depth in a fluid. Bottom Force is denoted by F_{Bottom} symbol.
How to calculate Bottom Force on Plate using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Bottom Force on Plate, enter Density of Fluid (ρ_{Fluid}), Distance of Top Edge from Free Surface (s), Vertical Distance of Point from Free Surface (h) & Area of Surface (A) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Bottom Force on Plate calculation can be explained with given input values -> 1433.288 = 1.225*[g]*(5.2+4.5)*12.3.
