how do you float?

Recommended Posts

haha yeah, even if i was born and raised in hawai'i, i was scared of going out too far.

 

so when you're in a swimming pool or at the beach, how in the hell do you keep your head above the water?

you have to learn how to tread water

its like pedaling a bicycle with your legs underwater and waving your arms about like your spreading peanut butter or something (seriously), it takes a while to learn but its worthwhile

 

having air in your lungs is also a major part of it because it makes you more bouyant

....buoyancy

 

keep this in mind..

 

the air in your lungs is lighter than water, thus keeping you on top of the water when your lungs are full of air..

 

when you see people floating along in the ocean, they are keeping their bodies stiff and air in their lungs by measured breaths..

the salt in the water also makes the water slightly more dense, so it is easier to float in the ocean than it is in a pool..

 

that's how people float, and why when they're dead, the lightest place in the body rises to the surface, the dorsal torso (the back)..the lungs are just underneath this area..
