Jeff: With all due respect, Archimedes' Law: Objects may displace fluids. If the mass of the displaced fluid is greater than the mass of the object, the object will float. If it is less, the object will sink. The density of an object is the mass of the object divided by its volume. Objects denser than the fluid they are in will sink, less dense objects will float.
