Ancient Greece

A long time ago  in Syracuse,  Ancient Greece   there was a great  mathematician name  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 discovery got him   thinking.  He was  so excited that he ran through the streets without any clothes on shouting Eureka ! Eureka ! This meant that I have found it in greek.

He figure out if you put something in water and it is lighter  than the among 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.
