The spirits of the party, however, which had been elated on first varying their journeying from land to water, had now lost some of their buoyancy
I had little time to dwell upon the coincidence of the simultaneous failure of the wireless and the buoyancy
generators, since very shortly after the Coldwater had dropped so low over the waters that all my attention was necessarily centered upon the delicate business of settling upon the waves without breaking my ship's back.
Her stern buoyancy
tanks prevented her dropping with great rapidity; but Thurid was firing rapidly now in an attempt to burst these also, that I might be dashed to death in the swift fall that would instantly follow a successful shot.
The damage to the buoyancy
tanks had evidently been more grievous than he had at first believed.
She knew that her buoyancy
tanks might keep her afloat indefinitely, but she had neither food nor water, and she was being borne toward the least-known area of Barsoom.
I could not get around the fact that many of these other boats could rise faster than ours by the fact of their greater buoyancy
, but I was none the less determined to reach the outer world far in advance of them or die a death of my own choosing in event of failure.
The liability of shipping another such sea was enormously increased by the water that weighed the boat down and robbed it of its buoyancy
You don't allow for our national buoyancy
She had noted the slight, dry cough, the daily brightening cheek; nor could the lustre of the eye, and the airy buoyancy

The medium of buoyancy
is contained within the thin metal walls of the body and consists of the eighth Barsoomian ray, or ray of propulsion, as it may be termed in view of its properties.
The deep distress that so evidently affected Marmaduke was in some measure communicated to Elizabeth also; for a look of dejection shaded her intelligent features, and the buoyancy

The passionate excitement of Love and the buoyancy
