Q.  What is the upward force experienced by a body, when it is immersed in a fluid, known as?

a. Tangential force
b. Buoyant force
c. Centrifugal force
d. Hydraulic force


ANSWER: See Answer
 
When a body is immersed in a fluid (liquid or gas) it exerts an upward force on that body. This upward force is called up thrust or buoyant force, The whole phenomenon is called as buoyancy.
