What is buoyancy ?

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’ discover got him thinking. He was so excited that he ran through the streets without any clothes on, shouting “ Eureka ! Eureka ! “ “ This means’ I found it in greek”


He  figured out if you put something in water and it is lighter in the amount of water than the water, displaced, the object can float it is buoyancy or
Archimedes principal, so if the object can float it is buoyant.
