IS equal to the weight of the liquid that was originally in the position now occupied by what is being buoyed up. After all that particular bit of liquid was originally held in place by the same bouyant force.

the net upward force due to the fluid is the buoyant force or the weight of the fluid displaced by the container

### What is the relationship between density of a liquid and the buoyant force exerted on the mass?

buoyant force = density of the liquid*Volume*gravity. so the buoyant force is directly proportional to the density of a liquid.

### Is buoyant force a contact force?

The buoyant force is a contact force, exerted by contact with a liquid that displaces the liquid within a gravity field. No contact, no force.
