This chapter deals with the floatation of some bodies on the surface of water or other fluids accounting for the surface tension of the fluid. The latter makes an important addition to Archimedes’ buoyancy force, especially substantial for small floating objects. Generally, the buoyancy force appears to be equal to the sum of Archimedes’ force and the term of summary surface tension forces. Some particular problems illustrating the combined effects of both components are studied. This chapter may be of interest for those who are involved in geophysics or marine science.
