Only when the cooling capacity of the supply air was increased to four times the cooling load (discharge velocity 100 fpm, 0.51 m/s) the supply air jet could overcome the upward buoyant force and reach the top surface of the table.
Regarding the buoyant force, we use Archimedes' principle; that is, when an object is submersed in a fluid, there is a resulting upward buoyant force on the object that is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the object.
An object sinks if its weight is greater than the buoyant force.
where the design parameters of (3) are as follows: a represents the x distance from the cm to the forward tether attachment; b represents the x distance from the cm to the aft tether attachment; c represents the z distance from the cm to all tether attachments; [DELTA]x represents the x distance between the cm and center of buoyancy (positive signifies a cm forward of the cb); [F.sub.b] represents the total buoyant force.
At high enough spin speeds with a polymer with low enough viscosity, buoyant forces aid in removing bubbles.
In this study, geometrical properties such as linear dimensions, sphericity, mass of fruit, projected area, surface area, true density, volume, hydrodynamic properties in water namely terminal velocity, drag force and buoyant force and bruising characteristics like as bruise area and bruise volume of two varieties of table olive fruit were determined.
In water, all objects experience an upward buoyant force equal to the weight of the water they displace.
If the mass floats force can be applied in the direction of gravity until it just sinks to determine buoyant force. [ILLUSTRATION OMITTED] This student has a 'text book' type diagram which does show buoyancy acts in the opposite direction to weight and complements the first two sentences which do not make this point explicitly.
The BOJ's quantitative easing policy might have provided ''some buoyant force'' to the economy by stabilizing market interest rates at very low levels, he said.
The force of the water against the object is called the Buoyant Force.
While the shotcrete shell weighed approximately 75,000 pounds, the buoyant force was 100,000 pounds.

buoyant force did not specify what material the submerged objects were
Another concern was that a permanent, waterproof basement floor would result in a buoyant force on the overall structure during storm surges.
Just as the submerged part of an iceberg displaces seawater, providing a buoyant force that supports the part of the iceberg above water, submerged crust on Earth displaces the denser mantle, keeping afloat highland features that stick out above the surface.
