Who said the word Eureka and why
Eureka: What does the expression mean?
Gold or not gold? The mathematician Archimedes of Syracuse (287-212 BC) was supposed to find out for King Hieron II. He wanted to know if his crown was made of pure gold. Archimedes pondered for days, but found no solution.
Once when he was taking a bath, he came up with the solution to the tricky task: the amount of water that he displaced when he got into the tub and that sloshed over the edge corresponded exactly to the volume of his body. With enthusiasm he ran naked through Syracuse and shouted: "Eureka!"Translated into German, that means:" I found it! "
At home he dipped the crown and a gold bar of the same weight in a vat. If the crown had been made of real gold, it should have caused exactly the same amount of water to overflow as the bar. Archimedes found out that silver was also mixed in with it.
So when someone says "Eureka!" calls, he would like to print out that he has found something important and is happy.
