You place a block of wood into a beaker of water and it floats. What can you say about the buoyant force on the block?
The buoyant force is stronger than the gravity force (the block's weight). Consequently, the block's density is smaller than water's density.
Archimedes principle affirms that a body submerged in a fluid (for example a liquid, or more precisely, water) experiences an upward force equal to the weight of fluid (liquid, water) displaced.
