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 Submerged Volume given Weight of Fluid Body?
Submerged Volume given Weight of Fluid Body calculator uses Submerged Volume = Weight of Fluid Body/(Density of Fluid*[g]) to calculate the Submerged Volume, The Submerged Volume given Weight of Fluid Body formula is defined as the function of weight of fluid body, density of fluid and gravitational acceleration. The upward buoyant force must be equal to the weight of the imaginary fluid body whose volume is equal to the volume of the solid body. The buoyant force acting on a body of uniform density immersed in a fluid is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the body, and it acts upward through the centroid of the displaced volume. For floating bodies, the weight of the entire body must be equal to the buoyant force, which is the weight of the fluid whose volume is equal to the volume of the submerged portion of the floating body. Submerged Volume is denoted by V_{S} symbol.
How to calculate Submerged Volume given Weight of Fluid Body using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Submerged Volume given Weight of Fluid Body, enter Weight of Fluid Body (W) & Density of Fluid (ρ_{Fluid}) and hit the calculate button.
