Upthrust

Observe what happens when a cork is forced into water and then released.

The cork is observed to buoy up when released under water. This shows that there is a force, due to water, that pushes the cork upwards. This upward force is called upthrust. Upthrust is the upward force exerted on an object when it is immersed in a liquid or gas.
