How is buoyant force related to floating and sinking?
buoyant force is an upward force by the fluid applied on an object immersed in it.
The buoyant force on an object is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the object.
If the buoyant force is = to the object's weight then the object will float.
If the buoyant force is < the object's weight then the object will sink.
