This is a great explanation of how Archimedes arrived at his discovery of the Law of Buoyancy. He was also reputed to have stated, Give me the place to stand and I will move the Earth. Ole Archimedes was something of a wit for his time. The formulae created by this groovy Greek are still in use today. That’s one hell of a fine legacy for a man who likes to run (allegedly) naked through the streets shocking all the grannies of the ancient world.
