Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,

I assume that you all know the water displacement theory where:

The volume of water displaced is equal to volume of completely submerged object.

Now, my questions is this: does this theory work for other liquids besides water (e.g. mercury, seawater)?
If not, then can you please explain by using example equations/formulae to prove your point.

Many thanks,
Jay

Welcome to PF!

Yes, what you said, though a little clumsily worded, does work for other fluids besides water.
