What is Bouyant

Along 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 discovering got him thinking. He was so excited that he ran through the streets without any clothes on shouting  Eureka Eureka! This meant I have found it greek.

He figured out that if you put something in water and it is lighter than the amount of water being displace, the object will float. This is known as Buoyancy or the Archimedes principle. So if the object can float, it is buoyant.
