Buoyancy and Boats - Terms:

Background on Buoyancy:

"Buoyancy" is the upward force of water that works against an object's mass -- the "buoyant force" depends on the object's volume. The greater an object's volume - the greater the amount of water it displaces and, therefore, the greater the "buoyant force".
