Therefore, for a theory to be understood by common people it has be simply described to make it attractive. For example, let us consider the topic of an object sinking or floating in water. A scientist will easily conclude that an object having a density higher than that of water will sink and an object having a lesser density than water will float. But a common person may have difficulty in understanding without proper examples. An iron ball may be taken and dropped into a bucket of water. It will sink in water as it has more density. Similarly, ice floats in water as it has density lower...
