hey , first time poster :)

Question is, what is the equation that represents the force of Buoyancy and Air Resistance.

I've had quite a hard time looking around on the internet for these and I need these to do a project (make up project).

Thanks kindly.

Daniel

Bouyancy force,a.k.a. Archimede's force can easily be constructed once you know his principle.

You can search the internet for Stokes force (viscous force) or drag/aerodynamical force...

It's ARCHIMEDES. I'd prefer if people write down names in their original manner.

MARLON

ps in Greek, you can see his name here :

History, dexter...hmmm

So do I.It was my original manner (sic!) to write down his name.

I think you wanted to type

$$\displaystyle{A P X I M H \Delta H \Sigma}$$

Not at all, i added the site.

Besides here is another one :

Study the history dexter, i am doing you a favour here.

marlon

edit : besides, i am glad to see you are learning the correct spelling already...Thanks for looking at that site. You see, it's not that bad to be corrected isn't it ?

marlon and dextercioby: I have seen at least four threads where you guys are going at each other.

It's kind of funny, I can't tell if your good friends or arch enemies.

Nah,i think we can't ignore each other (marlon,remember?).

History of Physics is my strength,amigo...

Daniel.

it's entertaining

anyway I'll let you get back to the topic... sorry to interupt

Surprise, surprise, i tend to disagree. ArchimedeS is quite improtant in the history of science, isn't he ?

I am also very much into classical music. You won't hear me talk about W A Mozar , though

marlon

Still kind of confused here...

Surprise,surprise...Spelling and forces down an incline are not your among your favorite subjects,i guess...

Fred Garvin has given you reference to both subjects...

So is YOUR syntaxis YOUR dexter and your ability to correct false mistakes... ahh dexter, i think in the end, i am going to like you

## 1. What is the equation for force?

The equation for force is F = ma, where F represents force, m represents mass, and a represents acceleration.

## 2. How is force measured?

Force is measured in Newtons (N) using a spring scale or a force meter.

## 3. What is the difference between mass and weight?

Mass is the amount of matter an object contains, while weight is the force of gravity acting on an object's mass. Mass is measured in kilograms (kg), while weight is measured in Newtons (N).

## 4. How does force affect an object's motion?

According to Newton's Second Law of Motion, the acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the net force acting on the object and inversely proportional to its mass. This means that the greater the force applied to an object, the greater its acceleration will be.

## 5. Can force be negative?

Yes, force can be negative if it acts in the opposite direction of the object's motion. This is often referred to as a "decelerating" force.
