Archimedes Principle

Archimedes' Principle explains why steel ships float If the weight of the water displaced is less than the weight of the object, the object will sink Otherwise the object will float, with the weight of the water displaced equal to the weight of the object. http://www.science-niblets.org/physics/why-can-heavy-steel-ships-float.html
