...that of the cone as 8 to 5? Now, by the principles of hydrostatics, the magnitude of the whole cone **is to the magnitude of the part immersed, as the specific gravity of the fluid is to that of the body,** or as 8 to 5. But the whole cone and part immersed are similar ; their contents are as 8 to 5. Hence,... | |
