A long time ago in Syracuse, Ancient Greece there was a 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 discovery got him thinking, he was so excited that he ran thru the streets without any clothes on, shouting “ Eureka! Eureka ! This means I 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 know as buoyancy, or the Archimedes principle so if the object can float, it is buoyant.
