OLIVIA What is Buoyancy?

A long time ago in Syracuse  ancient Greece,there was a great mathematician named Archimedes’.One day when he was taking a bath he discovered something life changing.

When he got in some water got displaced and it overflowed over the bath tub

Archimedes’ discovering got him thinking.He was so excited that he ran through streets without any clothes on shouting eureka! eureka!.This meant I have found it in Greek

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