A Crown, a Bath and a Suspicious King (The Incredible Story Behind Archimedes’ Principle)

Mark Salata: How taking a bath led to Archimedes’ principle is a quick history/science lesson about how Archimedes first stumbled upon the concepts of buoyancy and density. Narrated by Mark Salata and animated by TED-Ed, the fun side-lesson being taught here is that the famous “Eureka!” exclamation comes from a naked man having a bright idea as he spills bathwater all over his floor.
