Biography of a Mathematician Archimedes, one of the greatest mathematicians, engineers, physicist, inventors, and astronomer 's in history. Ranked with the likes of Isaac Newton and Carl Gauss, Archimedes contributions to math include the area of geometry, number theory, algebra, and theorems of plane. Birth Archimedes was born in Syracuse, Greece on the island of Sicily in 287 BC. Son of Pheidias, a well-known astronomer, and research showing that Archimedes is thought to be a relative of…
It is because we are different that each of us is special. When time never waits for us, Then why do we always wait for the right time?? No time is wrong to do the right things.. Be big enough to admit and admire the abilities of people who are better than you. Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build a bridge even where there is no river. Life gives us daily lessons; not to study but to understand. Once in a while you have to take a break and visit yourself…
Dominic Sachs 2nd block Archimedes 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…
Archimedes of Syracuse (287 BC – 212 BC) was a Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor, and astronomer. Archimedes is generally considered to be the greatest mathematician of antiquity and one of the greatest of all time. He used the method of exhaustion to calculate the area under the arc of a parabola with the summation of an infinite series, and gave a remarkably accurate approximation of pi. He also defined the spiral bearing his name, formulae for the volumes of solids of revolution…
Darwin’s Contribution to Science Eric Nash Bio-Literature Dr. Slovak 04/15/2013 When one ponders the current understanding of evolution and natural selection and where it came from, many names may come to mind. However, the man who gave us the idea of natural selection in the first place was none other than Charles Darwin. While Darwin was not the only one conducting research of this kind, his name stands out as a driving force behind our current understanding of evolution. Charles Darwin…
an astronomer, Phidias, in 287 B.C., Archimedes' education began as a young man in Syracuse. He furthered his education in Alexandria, where he studied with fellow scholar Conon, an Egyptian mathematician. What we know of Archimedes comes from his personal works as well as those of Cicero and Plutarch. However, "due to the length of time between Archimedes' death and his biographers' accounts, as well as inconsistencies among their writings, details of his life must remain subject to question"…
in 287 B.C.E, Archimedes was a well-known, and respected Greek scientist, mathematician, engineer, astronomer, and inventor(Archimedes,Famous). Most of his life is unknown, mainly, his early life, and when many of his accomplishments were made. Nevertheless, many of his works, principles, inventions, writings, and findings have influenced society and the world of science and math to great heights(Toomer). Archimedes will always be credited as a leader for these advancements of science, mathematics…
The Life of Archimedes Archimedes 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 discovered how to find the volume of a sphere, determine…
Archimedes' principle indicates that the upward buoyant force that is exerted on a body immersed in a fluid, whether fully or partially submerged, is equal to the weight of the fluid that the body displaces. Archimedes' principle is a law of physics fundamental to fluid mechanics. Archimedes of Syracuse[1] formulated this principle, which bears his name. Practically seen, the Archimedes principle allows us to measure the volume of our container, by measuring the volume of the liquid it displaces…
Archimedes was one of the greatest philosophers who lived from 287 BC to 211 BC in Syracuse. Archimedes was a physicist, astronomer, engineer and mathematician who discovered and invented machines such as the Archimedean screw, Archimedes principle, Archimedean spiral, Archimedes claw, planetarium, compound pulley system and many war machines. His greatest contributions were in geometry and his methods and ideas started the idea of calculus and finding the density of an object without damaging the…
