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

Born the son of 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

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

Michael Rice Applying math to real life September 3‚ 2010 Obituary for Archimedes of Syracuse Archimedes was born in Syracuse‚ Italy in 287 B.C. His father was Pheidias‚ who happened to be an astronomer. He studied at Alexandria‚ Egypt. He was also close friends with the King of Syracuse. He died in 212 B.C. Archimedes performed numerous geometric proofs using the rigid geometric formalism outlined by Euclid‚ excelling especially at computing areas and volumes using the method of exhaustion

Archimedes’ & Pascal’s Principle Purpose In this lab‚ we will prove Archimedes’ Principle by finding the density of a Metal Cylinder‚ a cork‚ and an unknown fluid by using Archimedes’ Principle. We will also use the PASCO Pascal’s Principle Lab Setup to investigate the use of fluid pressure as a hydraulic system to do work and we will find its mechanical advantage. Procedure For the first part of the lab we will be verifying case 3 as explained by professor. We

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
