Density and Buoyancy: Broad Concept: All objects experience a buoyant force when immersed in a fluid. As a basis for understanding this concept, students:
Determine and explain that the buoyant force on an object in a fluid is an upward force equal to the weight of the fluid the object has displaced; this principle can be used to predict whether an object will float or sink in a given fluid.
