Buoyancy Force Upaka Rathnayake (PhD) 80 Archimedes (287 BC), born in Sicily. Created hydrostatics. His Principle When a body is placed in a fluid it experiences an upward force which is equal the weight of the fluid displaced. This force is called the Buoyancy Force.

Buoyancy Force contd. Upaka Rathnayake (PhD) 81 Totally submerged object Considering any vertical plane VV through the body. Projected area of each of the two sides on this plane will be equal The horizontal forces F will be equal and opposite. There is, therefore, no resultant horizontal force on the body due to the pressure of the surrounding fluid. The only force exerted by the fluid on an immersed body is vertical and is called the buoyancy or upthrust.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
