Archimedes (c. 287–212 BC) - Archimedes

Archimedes (c. 287–212 BC): Archimedes was an Ancient Greek mathematician, physicist, engineer, inventor, and astronomer whose contributions were significant in the development of the foundations of mathematics and science. His vast intellect and knack for problem-solving made him one of the most influential figures in the scientific world. Archimedes formulated concepts including the principles of leverage and buoyancy which are still widely used in modern physics and engineering. He also invented practical devices including the screw pump that bears his name – the Archimedean screw. Archimedes also made advancements in the field of mathematics with the estimate of pi and the method of exhaustion which is a precursor to integral calculus.
