“It is evident that, when a solid is immersed in a fluid, it will displace exactly its own volume of the fluid. Immerse a solid cube one centimeter on each edge in water, so that its upper face shall be level and one centimeter below the surface of the liquid, as shown. The lateral pressures upon any two opposite vertical surfaces of the cube, as a and b, are clearly equal and opposite.” -Avery 1895
