emergency flotation systems efs are emergency systems installed on larger commercial and military helicopters in order to prevent the airframe sinking in the event of a crash landing on water. the floats may be packed within spaces inside the airframe or as externally mounted packs on the helicopter skids.the floats are inflated using gas stored in pressurised cylinders carried on board the .
the float serve is one of the types of serves in the game of volleyball.the serve involves hitting the volleyball in such a way to minimize the rotation of the ball, causing unpredictability in the ball’s movement and is akin to baseball's knuckleball.during this serve, the ball is moving in the air without spin, allowing drag, lift, and turbulent air flow to have a big effect on its movement.
float glass is a sheet of glass made by floating molten glass on a bed of molten metal, typically tin, although lead and other various low-melting-point alloys were used in the past. this method gives the sheet uniform thickness and very flat surfaces. modern windows are made from float glass.
it can be the case that forces other than just buoyancy and gravity come into play. this is the case if the object is restrained or if the object sinks to the solid floor. an object which tends to float requires a tension restraint force t in order to remain fully submerged.

tournament of roses parade floats are flower-covered parade floats, used in the annual new year's day tournament of roses parade held in pasadena, california.they evolved from flower-decorated horse carriages with the present day requirement that 'every inch of every float must be covered with flowers or other natural materials, such as leaves, seeds or bark'.
microflotation is a further development of standard dissolved air flotation daf . microflotation is a water treatment technology operating with microbubbles of 10–80 μm in size instead of 80-300 μm like conventional daf units. the general operating method of microflotation is similar to standard recycled stream daf units.
single-precision floating-point format is a computer number format, usually occupying 32 bits in computer memory; it represents a wide dynamic range of numeric values by using a floating radix point. a floating-point variable can represent a wider range of numbers than a fixed-point variable of the same bit width at the cost of precision.
an isolation tank, often referred to as a sensory deprivation tank also known as float tank, float pod, float cabin, flotation tank, or sensory attenuation tank is a pitch-black, light-proof, soundproof environment heated to the same temperature as the skin.the tank is filled with 10 inches of water which contains enough dissolved epsom salt to create a specific gravity of approximately 1.275.
merge 'floatation' into 'flotation' 'flotation' seems to be the modern accepted spelling my oxford english minidictionary 1991 lists 'flotation', but makes no mention of 'floatation' , and as i've just found that there's another disambiguation page by the name 'floatation', i suggest merging it into this page.
flotation also spelled floatation involves phenomena related to the relative buoyancy of objects.. the term may also refer to: flotation archaeology , a method for recovering very small artefacts from excavated sediments flotation shares , an initial public offering of stocks or shares in a company flotation, any material added to the hull of a watercraft to keep the hull afloat
