Buoyant forces in different fluids | Matter |Physics
Published at : 07 Dec 2020
When an object is immersed in a liquid and its weight is measured, we find that the weight is lower than the weight of the object in air. The reason for this is the buoyant force exerted by the liquid on the object. The buoyant force acts against gravity and gives the object an upward push, thus reducing the weight of the object. This video demonstrates that the buoyant force is different for different liquids and it depends on the density of the liquid. The denser the liquid, the greater the buoyant force.
