Inventions of Archimedes
Archimedes area of expertise was inventions and coming up with great ideas. He was a very smart person, and had invented some useful inventions for human kind for what is still used today. BC. He was a physicist, engineer, inventor, astronomer and a Greek mathematician. Archimedes is one of the greatest math mathematicians of all time. He has been given credit for the invention of the lever even though it was used thousand of years before his time despite the fact that he did not invent it. He only gave an explanation of the principal involved in his work. Once He had made the statement “If I were to have a place to stand, I would be able to move the entire earth”. Another invention Archimedes had invented was the Archimedes screw. This invention helps to bring water from lower areas to higher grounds by a rotating screw inside a tube constantly. The water is forced out the tube even though the water is at lower ground. This invention is also used today. Also an interesting invention Archimedes invented was the Heat Ray. This was used to destroy enemy ships by catching a part of the ship on fire then having it burn all the way down. People have tested this invention out to see if it was true for example, in 1973 a Greek scientist Ioannis Sakkas but had failed. In 2006 the Mythbusters had tested out this invention but also failed, while in 2005 a group of students had a small flame on a wooden ship they made. Archimedes childhood

Archimedes was born in the seaport city of Syracuse, Sicily on c. 287 BC and since there are little records on his birth people don’t know very much about his childhood. He was related to King Hiero II, the ruler of Syracuse by “parallel lives” which was stated by Plutarch, a Greek historian. Apart from where Archimedes had lived, there is not very much information about his childhood....

...Archimedes Background/Upbringing
Archimedes was one of the most known and respected mathematicians of ancient Greece. He was born between the years of 290 and 280 BCE in Syracuse, Sicily which is currently known as Italy. His death took place in Syracuse, Sicily between the years of 212 and 211 BCE. In autumn of 212 or the spring of 211 Syracuse was taken over by Roman General Marcus Claudius Marcellus (Encyclopedia Britannica, n.d). It was during the cities take...

The Life of ArchimedesArchimedes was a Greek mathematician, a scientist, and a skilled inventor who was born around 287 B.C. in the seaport city of Syracuse, Sicily. It has been said that since his father was an astronomer, Archimedes inherited his fathers interest for mathematics, science, and inventions, however his biggest interest was in Geometry. In his lifetime not only was he was able to create a ton of helpful inventions, he also...

...Archimedes’ Principle
Abstract
The purpose of this experiment was to investigate the Archimedes’ Principle for objects of different densities and use the principle to determine the density of a golf ball. The weight of rubber stopper and the wood cube were measured in the air by using the force sensor. When the objects were submerged in the water, the apparent weight of the objects was measure with the force sensor and the volume of the displaced water were...

...for the tyrant of Siracuse, Hiero II.Since this was one of the biggest ships in its time it would be inevitable that it would take on water.Therefore, Archimedes's screw was used to pump the water back into the sea.
It is unclear whether or not Archimedes designed this pump for the use on the ship but it is widely thought that the great mathematician invented such a tool to help Egyptians maneuver water from lower land to higher for watering the fields.
This invention has...

...Title:
Archimedes principle
Objective:
To use Archimedes Principle to determine the density of an object more dense than water.
Introduction:
Archimedes' principle is a law of physics stating that the upward force (buoyancy) exerted on a body immersed in a fluid is equal to the weight of the amount of fluid the body displaces. In other words, an immersed object is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight of the fluid it actually displaces. Hence,...

..."Give me a lever long enough and a place to stand, and I will move the world."
Archimedes
By Alex Christopher
Archimedes was a mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor and astronomer in ancient Greece. He was born in 287 BC and lived until 212 BC in Syracuse, Sicily where he lived his whole life, except for when he went to school. Archimedes father was an astronomer and the family was related to the king of Syracuse. His family had money so...

...Measurement of Mass, Volume, and Density through
Archimedes Principle
Overview:
The purpose of this experiment was to measure the density of a solid and a liquid using Archimedes principle. Archimedes is one of the greatest inventors and mathematicians of all time. The principle we used in this experiment was discovered when Archimedes stepped into a full bath tub. Using Archimedes principle, we were able to determine...
