Principle of Floatation - Statement

The principle of floatation states that when an object floats on a liquid the buoyant force that acts on the object is equal to the weight of the object. Following are the pointers to remember in floatation:

  • The displaced volume of fluid is equal to the volume of the object which is immersed in the fluid.
  • If the weight of the object is greater than the upthrust, then the object will sink in the fluid.
  • If the weight of the object is equal to the upthrust, then the object is balanced making the object float.
