A long time a go 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 over float over the bath tub.
Archimedes discovery got him thinking. He was so excited that he ran through  the streets without any cloth on shouting eureka ! eureka !  this meant I have found it in greek.  

He figure out  that if you put something in water and it is lighter then  the amount of water being displaced, the object will float. This is known as buoyancy or the Archimedes  principle. So if the object can float it is buoyant.
