1. The buoyant force is the resultant of the pressure (x area) that is applied to all submerged portion of the immersed object.

The sum is always straight up and equals the weight of the displaced fluid.

Need help on this one as well: How can you predict whether an object will float or sink in a fluid if you don't know the force of its weight or the buoyant force? Thanks! -MC
