How Density plays a role on Upthrust Force?
Density of the fluid directly affects the upthrust force experienced by a submerged object. Imagine two objects with the same volume, one submerged in water (denser) and the other in oil (less dense). According to Archimedes' principle, upthrust equals the weight of displaced fluid. Since water is denser, it weighs more per unit volume compared to oil. As a result, the object in water experiences a greater upthrust force than the one in oil, even though their submerged volumes are identical. In simpler terms, denser fluids provide a stronger "buoyant push" on submerged objects.
How to Calculate Upthrust Force?
Upthrust Force calculator uses Upthrust Force = Volume Immersed*[g]*Mass Density of Fluid to calculate the Upthrust Force, The Upthrust force also referred as 'Buoyancy force' acting on a body fully or partially submerged in a fluid is governed by Archimedes' principle. This principle states that the upthrust force is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the body. The upthrust force always acts vertically upwards, directly opposite the weight of the displaced fluid. Upthrust Force is denoted by F_{t} symbol.
How to calculate Upthrust Force using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Upthrust Force, enter Volume Immersed (V_{i}) & Mass Density of Fluid (ρ) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Upthrust Force calculation can be explained with given input values -> 11532.62 = 1.2*[g]*980.
