What is buoyancy?

A long time a go in 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 got displaced and it overflowed over the bath tub.

Archimedes’ discovery got him thinking.He was so excited that he run through the street  without any clothes on shouting Eureka! Eureka! This meant that I have found it in Greek.

He figured out of 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 the Archimedes principle. So if the object can float it is buoyant.
