The Buoyancy Calculator will calculate:

- The immersed volume of a floating object
- Buoyant force exerted by a fluid on objects immersed in them
- Mass of the displaced liquid when an object is immersed in it

The immersed part of a floating object expressed in percentage is m^{3} |

The buoyant force exerted by a fluid on objects completely immersed is N |

The mass of the displaced liquid when an object is completely immersed is kg |

F_{b} = ρ_{liq} × V_{obj} × gF _{b} = × × F _{b} = |

The mass of the displaced liquid when an object is completely immersed calculations |

m_{disp} = ρ_{liq} × V_{obj}m _{disp} = × m _{disp} = |

Buoyancy Calculator Input Values |

Mass of the immersed or floating object (m_{obj}) kg |

Total volume of the immersed or floating object (V_{obj}) m |

Density of liquid (ρ_{liq}) kg/m^{3} |

Gravitational field strength (g) m/s^{2} |

Please note that the formula for each calculation along with detailed calculations are available below. As you enter the specific factors of each buoyancy calculation, the Buoyancy Calculator will automatically calculate the results and update the Physics formula elements with each element of the buoyancy calculation. You can then email or print this buoyancy calculation as required for later use.

We hope you found the Buoyancy Calculator useful with your Physics revision, if you did, we kindly request that you rate this Physics calculator and, if you have time, share to your favourite social network. This allows us to allocate future resource and keep these Physics calculators and educational material free for all to use across the globe. We believe everyone should have free access to Physics educational material, by sharing you help us reach all Physics students and those interested in Physics across the globe.

The Buoyancy Calculator only works if the liquid depth is greater than the object's height.

V_{im} = *m*_{obj}*/**ρ*_{liq}

F_{b} = ρ_{liq} × V_{obj} × g

m_{disp} = ρ_{liq} × V_{obj}
