...weighed in air and then in water, and the loss of weight noted. Whatever it loses in water will be **the weight of a quantity of water equal in bulk to the** gold. As many times, therefore, as this loss is contained in its weight ( in air, so many times heavier... | |

...displaces when sinking in that fluid. Hence, if we subtract the weight in water from that in air, we obtain **the weight of a quantity of water equal in bulk to the solid.** If a bit of lead weigh in air 550 grains, it will be found, when weighed in water, to be lighter, and... | |

...solid suspended by a hair, first in air, then in water, we will have the loss of weight in water, which **is the weight of a quantity of water equal in bulk to the solid.** Consequently, the weight in air divided by the loss of weight in water, will give a number which represents... | |
