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 Volume of Plate?
Volume of Plate calculator uses Volume of Body = Height of Plate*Area of Surface to calculate the Volume of Body, The Volume of Plate formula is defined as the product of height of plate and area of plate. The difference between these two forces (Net downward force and net upward force ) is a net upward force, which is the buoyant force where V is the volume of the plate. But the relation 𝜌gV is simply the weight of the liquid whose volume is equal to the volume of the plate. Thus, we conclude that the buoyant force acting on the plate is equal to the weight of the liquid displaced by the plate. For a fluid with constant density, the buoyant force is independent of the distance of the body from the free surface. It is also independent of the density of the solid body. Volume of Body is denoted by V symbol.
How to calculate Volume of Plate using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Volume of Plate, enter Height of Plate (h_{plate}) & Area of Surface (A) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Volume of Plate calculation can be explained with given input values -> 19.188 = 1.56*12.3.
