Show that given a small vertical displacement from its equilibrium position a floating body subsequently performs simple harmonic motion of period 2pi sqrt(V/Ag) where V is the volume of displaced liquid and A is the area of the plane of floatation. Ignore the viscous forces.

Solution:
Show that given a small vertical displacement from its equilibrium position a fl
