Archimedes

Post  Ophirkes on Mon Feb 09, 2015 5:25 pm

Archimedes was one of the most known and famous mathematicians and scientist known from Ancient Greece. It has been told that he lived to be 75 years old by someone who looked up to him. Archimedes was a very important man to Greece and some say that he was even a little crazy, you will see why later. Even today, we still look and learn from what he has studied and discovered.
Archimedes discovered the displacement in water, as well as volume. Obviously he discovered more things, but these were some of the most important discoveries that are still used today. One day, when he was putting water into his tub and went in, he saw that water came out; like as he was sitting down, water was staring to drip from the sides. This is basically the invention of how you can find the volume of an object by putting it in water. When this happened, he went running, naked, saying “I found it” or something similar to that.

Archimedes was a very bright man. He was very bright just like the other great and succeful philosophers, scientist, etc. of Greece. Many greeks have discovered things that we still used today, so they must be very proud of their ancestors. Very Happy
