Enter the total buoyancy (N) and the opposing forces (N) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Net Buoyancy.

## Net Buoyancy Formula

NB = TB - OF

Variables:

- NB is the Net Buoyancy (N)
- TB is the total buoyancy (N)
- OF is the opposing forces (N)

To calculate Net Buoyancy, subtract the opposing forces from the total buoyancy.

## How to Calculate Net Buoyancy?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Net Buoyancy.

- First, determine the total buoyancy (N).
- Next, determine the opposing forces (N).
- Next, gather the formula from above = NB = TB – OF.
- Finally, calculate the Net Buoyancy.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total buoyancy (N) = 1400

opposing forces (N) = 200
