How do buoyant forces change with depth?

Normally does not vary with depth, unless the object is compressible, or density of fluid varies with deoth


Buoyancy or buoyant force is proportional to object's volume and density of the fluid in which the object floats.

#B prop rho *V#

So with depth, density may change, or the volums of the object will change when it gets compressed due to the higher pressure at greater depth.
