Analysis When a body is submerged on a liquid the amount of buoyant force of that body is equal to the amount of force or the weight of the water displaced If a body is floating in water. The buoyant force is acting as a resisting force to the the body's actual weight Cork is also a good liquid absorbing material because it has lots of spaces and gaps inside of it, so if the cork is get wet before getting its weight in air, it will affect the result of the experiment, because when it is wet it can gain a mass that can greatly affect the value of the experiment. Conclusion A body submerged in water has lesser weight compare to its weight in air, because of the buoyant force that is resisting the actual weight of the body. The factors to be considered in determination of the bouyant force of the body is to know how much water it displaced when it sumberged in water, what are the properties of the material ( is it a poor or good absorbent of liquid? ) and what it is specific gravity.
