Need verification of an equation

    Need verification for this equation for buoyancy force.

    If
    weight of an object in a fluid density of the object
    _______________________= ________________
    weight of the displaced fluid density of fluid

    Than
    weight of object x density of fluid
    weight of displaced fluid= ___________________________
    density of object

    Weight of displaced fluid=w1=buoyancy force


    w2d1
    ___________=b-force
    d2

    Welcome to the PF.

    Usually thread starts are a bit easier to decode. Are you asking a question?

    Well I solved it to get an equation for buoyancy force; I want to know if I did my math right. My parents were no help.
