The Buoyancy Calculator will calculate:
|The immersed part of a floating object expressed in percentage is m3|
|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|
|The immersed part of a floating object expressed in percentage calculations|
|Vim = mobj/ρliq |
Vim = /
|The buoyant force exerted by a fluid on objects completely immersed calculations|
|Fb = ρliq × Vobj × g|
Fb = × ×
|The mass of the displaced liquid when an object is completely immersed calculations|
|mdisp = ρliq × Vobj|
mdisp = ×
|Buoyancy Calculator Input Values|
|Mass of the immersed or floating object (mobj) kg|
|Total volume of the immersed or floating object (Vobj) m|
|Density of liquid (ρliq) kg/m3|
|Gravitational field strength (g) m/s2|
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.
