## < 11 Buoyancy and Floatation Calculators

Bottom Force on Plate
Bottom Force = Density of Fluid*[g]*(Distance of Top Edge from Free Surface+Vertical Distance of Point from Free Surface)*Area of Surface
Buoyant Force on Flat Plate of Uniform Thickness
Buoyant Force = Density of Fluid*[g]*Vertical Distance of Point from Free Surface*Area of Surface
Top Force on Plate
Top Force = Density of Fluid*[g]*Distance of Top Edge from Free Surface*Area of Surface
Submerged Volume given Weight of Fluid Body
Submerged Volume = Weight of Fluid Body/(Density of Fluid*[g])
Weight of Submerged Portion of Floating Body
Weight of Fluid Body = Density of Fluid*[g]*Submerged Volume
Volume of Body given Buoyant Force
Volume of Body = Buoyant Force/(Density of Fluid*[g])
Buoyant Force given Volume of Body
Buoyant Force = Density of Fluid*[g]*Volume of Body
Volume of Plate
Volume of Body = Height of Plate*Area of Surface
Bottom Force given Buoyant Force and Top Force
Bottom Force = Buoyant Force+Top Force
Top Force given Buoyant Force and Bottom Force
Top Force = Bottom Force-Buoyant Force
Buoyant Force given Bottom and Top Force
Buoyant Force = Bottom Force-Top Force

## Weight of Submerged Portion of Floating Body Formula

Weight of Fluid Body = Density of Fluid*[g]*Submerged Volume
W = ρFluid*[g]*VS

## What is Fluid Mechanics?

Fluid dynamics is “the branch of applied science that is concerned with the movement of liquids and gases”. It involves a wide range of applications such as calculating force & moments, determining the mass flow rate of petroleum through pipelines, predicting weather patterns, understanding nebulae in interstellar space, and modelling fission weapon detonation.

## 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 Weight of Submerged Portion of Floating Body?

Weight of Submerged Portion of Floating Body calculator uses Weight of Fluid Body = Density of Fluid*[g]*Submerged Volume to calculate the Weight of Fluid Body, The Weight of Submerged Portion of Floating Body formula is defined as the product of density of fluid, gravitational acceleration and submerged volume. 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. Weight of Fluid Body is denoted by W symbol.

How to calculate Weight of Submerged Portion of Floating Body using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Weight of Submerged Portion of Floating Body, enter Density of Fluid Fluid) & Submerged Volume (VS) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Weight of Submerged Portion of Floating Body calculation can be explained with given input values -> 30.51339 = 1.225*[g]*2.54.
