Archimedes! I need you to lead a project. You are to take charge in finishing a sailing vessel the size of a palace, the Syracusia!
Geez, what am I putting myself into?
Still entangled in a void of confusion, Archimedes went home thinking of how he could pull off that project
How on earth are we supposed to make a vessel so large that can float on water?!
With so much things to be loaded on the Syracusia, Archimedes felt helpless. One question kept lurking on his mind while planning his strategy, "Will it sink?".
Will the vessel sink?
One day, while taking a bath, a realization hit Archimedes, this is where the Law of Buoyancy started to develop.
Aha! An object that is partially submerged into water is supported by a force which is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the object.
At this moment, while trying a simple experiment on the crown, Archimedes figured out how to prevent the Syracusia from sinking.
After a lot of hard work and a lot of thinking, Archimedes has successfully made the Syracusia go on its first and last voyage, without sinking of course!
