Archimedes (287-212 BC) was an ancient Greek mathematician, physicist, and engineer. He is renowned for discovering principles such as buoyancy (Archimedes’ Principle), the lever (Archimedes’ Lever), and the screw pump (Archimedes’ Screw). He made significant contributions to geometry, developing methods akin to calculus for determining areas and volumes. Archimedes’ mathematical prowess extended to solving practical problems, like calculating the area under a parabolic segment. His influence on science and engineering is profound, laying foundations for subsequent developments. His untimely death during the Siege of Syracuse didn’t diminish his legacy, as his works continued to inspire generations of scholars and practitioners in various fields.
