Archimedes's principle says that the buoyancy force would be equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the body. It's easy to work with the completely submerged object since I just need the whole volume of the object to as it is equal to the volume of displaced fluid. However, if an object is partially submerged, it would displace a lesser amount of liquid, and that amount is not equal to the entire volume of the object. So how can I calculate the buoyancy force under that circumstance? Thanks :)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
