...conftrucHon of it is founded on a theorem of Archimedes, which fhews, that a body placed in water, lofes **as much of its weight, as is equal to that of the** volume of the liquid difplaced by it ; from which it follows, that if we take the weight of the body... | |

...similar bulk of water, it will sink; if lighter, it will swim. Universally, therefore, a body plunged **in water loses as much of its weight as is equal to** the weight of a body of water of its own bulk. Some light bodies, therefore, such as cork, lose much... | |
