a certain amazing discovery he bad
jut worked out had so elated him
that he absentmindedly forgot every
thing else In tho Joy of the moment
And this Is how the discovery wan
made King III era Greek ruler of
Syracuse had ordered a heavy and
beautiful gold crown constructed for
himself Ho had reason to suspQCt
lthnt tho jeweler to whom he had In
trusted tho task had cheated him by
mixing a quantity of alloy with thq
gold that went Into the making of this
royal emblem Hut Micro had no
mentis ot proving his suspicions Ho
therefore sent for Archimedes whom I
he admired as the wisest man In his I
realm and asked him to find out some
way whereby he could mnko certain
of tho presence and exact amount of
alloy In tho crown
Archimedes undertook the problem
though he had no reason for suppos I

had observed similar action on tho
part of water but to none of them
had It suggested any especial Idea
To lArcklmedes however tho lucl
dent rhea nt something Ho Instantly
while hill bathing set to work on the
great Archimedes Principle mill In
use TWs principle briefly assorts
that any object plunged Into liquid
sustains an upward pressure equal to
the weight of the water It displaces
In other words that the body 1m
tnersed loses as much weight while
under water as the weight of an equal
volumeof the liquid Itself From this
it was b itip step for him to figure out
an abaurdl simple plan for dotermln
lug absurdltSlmPIO alloy In lifroV
crown Hq would drop tho crown Into
