...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...
