Buoyancy Calculator

Calculate the total force of buoyancy acting on an object. Enter the density of the fluid and the volume of displace fluid to calculate the buoyancy force.

Buoyancy Formula

The following formula can be use to calculate a force due to buoyancy:

B = ρ * V * g

  • Where B is the buoyant force
  • ρ is the density of the fluid
  • V is the volume of the displaced fluid
  • and g is the acceleration due to gravity

What is Buoyancy?

Buoyancy is the force acting on an object in a fluid that prevents it from moving through the liquid, or sinking. Typically the movement it’s resisting is sinking due to the gravity of the earth. Buoyancy is directly proportional to the density of the fluid and the volume of displaced fluid as you can tell through the equation presented above. Buoyancy is evident mostly in bodies of water, but can also be seen in air when objects like balloons float upwards away from the earth. This is due to the buoyant force.

How to calculate buoyancy

The following example will go over a real world example of how to calculate the buoyancy force on an object.

  1. The first step to calculating this force is to choose a gravitational acceleration you wish the force to oppose Most of the time you are observing a force on earth, so the gravitational constant would be 9.8 m/s^2. If the
  2. Next choose a liquid and determine the density of the fluid either empirically or mathematically.
  3. Finally, place the object in water and observe the total displaced water.

Enter all of the values into the equation or calculator above, and you have your buoyant force.
