Why do things float?

Q1. Why do things float?

Ans. When an object is immersed in water, the weight of the object pushes it down. But the water around it pushes it back up with a force equal to the weight of water displaced (pushed out of the way). The object sinks until its weight is equaled by the up thrust, then floats.
