Object mid-float.

  1. Sep 6, 2008 #1
    I just got an idea with believe that if an object of carefully choosen material is suspended in water(for now) and precise calculations are followed,an object will be able to suspend in mid water.Yes,this may be suggesting a flaw in the Law of Floatation and Achimedes' Principle.WHAT DO YOU THINK.

    If the object has the same density as water, it will stay where you put it if submerged. (This is called "neutral buoyancy".) No problem with Archimedes's principle.
