Work History

Work History

Inventor

  • Invented Archimede's screw, claw, and buoyancy theories.
  • I also invented many defensive weapons such as catapults, burning mirrors, and the law of levers and pulleys.
  • These defense weapons helped protect Syracuse from the attack of the Romans. 

Mathmatician 

  • I calculated the value of pi and discovered formulas for volume and area of a sphere.
  • I also showed that exponents can be used to show larger numbers. 
  • Archimedes principle, founded by myself, is a principle stating that if the weight of the water displaced is less than the weight of the object, the object will sink.

Physicist 

  • I discovered the most fundamental concept of physics, which is the center of gravity.
  • I am the first mathematical physicist, applying mathematics to the field of physics.
