How does a ship float on water?

Boat
The reason why boats can float on water is all down to buoyancy, distribution of weight and density. Buoyancy is the upward force that a body experiences when it is placed in water. It is very different from gravity and the simple reason being that buoyancy acts against the body in upward lift or direction. The buoyancy of a body is greatly dependent on the density of the body. The density of the body is the distribution of weight per cubic metre of volume. What that means is a steel bar will easily sink in water while a ship made of steel, on the other hand, will float because the density of the ship is lesser than the density of the water surface. That is to say that the volume…
