# Archimedes Principle

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

Archimedes principle is the upward bouyancy force that is extended on a body that is completely or partially immersed in a fluid and is equal to the weight of the fluid that the body displaces.

## Archimedes's principle formula

 $$\large{ B = \rho \; G \; V }$$

### Where:

$$\large{ B }$$ = buoyancy

$$\large{ \rho }$$  (Greek symbol rho) = density of fluid

$$\large{ G }$$ = gravitational constant

$$\large{ V }$$ = volume of solid
