G, it follows that (A -)- B) will remain stationary in the fluid. Therefore the force which causes A by itself to sink must be equal to the upward force exerted by the fluid on B by itself. This latter is equal to the difference between (G -)- H) and... The Works of Archimedes - Page 259by Archimedes - 1897 - 326 pagesFull view

...will be of the same weight as the same volume of fluid, both weights being equal to (G -f H) -j- G, it follows that (A -\- B) will remain stationary in...is equal to the difference between (G -(- H) and G. Hence A is depressed by a force equal to H, ie, its weight in the fluid is H, or the difference between...
