Unformatted text preview: on the first object greater than or equal to the buoyant force acting on the second object? Please Explain. Ans2.) Buoyant force is equal to weight of water displaced by the submerged object. Volume of water which will be displaced will be equal to the volume of the submerged object, and nothing to do with the density of submerged object. The buoyancy force only depends on the 1) Volume submerged. 2) The density of the liquid it is submerged in. 3) gravity (assumed to be g on earth) :) If the two objects are the same shape and dimension (same volume), the buoyancy force acting on them is the same. Archimedes Principle states that the buoyancy force acting on a wholly or partially submerged object is equal to the weight of the displaced fluid. Therefore, the density of the object does not change the magnitude of buoyant force acting on the body and the forces acting on both the bodies is the same ....
