...in air. Then say, as the difference of these remainders is to the weight of the lighter body in air, **so is the specific gravity of water to the specific gravity of the** lighter body. For example. A piece of wood weighs 15 pounds out of water, and a piece of copper weighing... | |

...and note the difference, which will be the weight lost in water; then, as the weight lost in writer **is to the whole weight, so is the specific gravity of water to the specific gravity of the body.** But if the body whose specific gravity is required is lighter than water, affix to it another body... | |
