Archimedes was especially known for his theories about hydrostatics. His most valued discovery was that the volume of a sphere is two-thirds of the volume of the cylinder that surrounds it. Moreover, he discovered the law of buoyancy, known as the Archimedes’ principle, and the Archimedes screw in which a screw enclosed in a pipe is used to raise the level of water. Archimedes was a famous mathematician in ancient Greece.
