How Buoyancy was found

A long time ago in Syracuse,Ancient greece there was a great mathematician named Archimedes'. One when he was taking a bath he discovered something life changing. When he got in some water got displaced it overfloat in the bath tub.


Archimedes’ discovery got him thinking. He was so excited that he ran through the streets without any clothes on saying Eureka!! Eureka!!. This meant I have found it in greek.


He figured out that if you put something in water and it is lighter than the amount of water being displaced,the object will float. This is known as Buoyancy or Archimedes principle. So if object can float,it is Buoyant.
