Equation that represents the force?

  1. Apr 6, 2005 #1
    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 :

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

    I think you wanted to type

    [tex] \displaystyle{A P X I M H \Delta H \Sigma} [/tex]

    ,but you changed your mind... :rolleyes:

    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.

    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 :rofl:
