1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Just trying to find an equation for buoyancy force.
2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
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

It does not mention what the =buoyancy equation is. Archimedes principle is limited. I also went to the buoyancy page on wikipedia. not help.

What is the formula for calculating the weight of a body? What's the formula for calculating the density of an object?

Mass times gravity and mass divided by volume.
