## I Need Help with Archimedes Priniciple and Bouyant Force

How do you Determine whether it floats or not
I know how to find the apparent force but how much force does it take to float above water and submergered but not sunken

 A cubic dm of aluminum is submerged in water. the density of aluminum is 2.70 X 10^3 kg/m^3 F buoyant is 9.80 N F g is 26.5 N 26.5-9.8= 16.7 N F apparent is 16.7 N how can you tell if it floats or not, i'm sure the answer is simple, but i'm not the brightest crayon in the box
