At the time, the King ordered the goldsmith to found a pure gold crown, but the King doubted that the goldsmith might have added alloy while making the crown. Therefore, he asked Archimedes to authenticate the crown. Archimedes kept wondering the method of authenticating the crown. As soon as he walked into the bathtub and saw the water spilling from the bathtub, he realized the way of using buoyance to measure the density of irregular objects.
