There were many. He is famous for the saying, "If I had a lever big enough I could move the world." Actually, a more accurate translation would be: If I had a firm enough place to stand, I could move the world.
He is also most known for hi invention of the Archimedes screw for pumping water.Archimedes' principleMain article: Archimedes' principle
Archimedes may have used his principle of buoyancy to determine whether the golden crown was less dense than solid gold.
The most widely known anecdote about Archimedes tells of how he invented a method for determining the volume of an object with an irregular shape. According to Vitruvius, a votive crown for a temple had been made for King Hiero II, who had supplied the pure gold to be used, and Archimedes was asked to determine whether some silver had been substituted by the dishonest goldsmith. Archimedes had to solve the problem without damaging the crown, so he could not melt it down into a regularly shaped body in order to calculate its density. While taking a bath, he noticed that the level of the water in the tub rose as he got in, and realized that this effect could be used to determine the volume of the crown. For practical purposes water is incompressible, so the submerged crown would displace an amount of water equal to its own volume. By dividing the mass of the crown by the volume of water displaced, the density of the crown could be obtained. This density would be lower than that of gold if cheaper and less dense metals had been added. Archimedes then took to the streets naked, so excited by his discovery that he had forgotten to dress, crying "Eureka!" (Greek: "εὕρηκα!," meaning "I have found it!"). The test was conducted successfully, proving that silver had indeed been mixed in.
The story of the golden crown does not appear in the known works of Archimedes. Moreover, the practicality of the method it describes has been called into question, due to the extreme accuracy with which one would have to measure the water displacement. Archimedes may have instead sought a solution that applied the principle known in hydrostatics as Archimedes' principle, which he describes in his treatise On Floating Bodies. This principle states that a body immersed in a fluid experiences a buoyant force equal to the weight of the fluid it displaces. Using this principle, it would have been possible to compare the density of the golden crown to that of solid gold by balancing the crown on a scale with a gold reference sample, then immersing the apparatus in water. The difference in density between the two samples would cause the scale to tip accordingly. Galileo considered it "probable that this method is the same that Archimedes followed, since, besides being very accurate, it is based on demonstrations found by Archimedes himself."
The contribution of Archimedes in physics are quite remarkable. Some of his main contributions was the law of buoyancy and also the principles of mechanics.

it helped mankind do there home work.
The biggest contribution of Blaise Pascal in physics is his contribution towards atmospheric pressure. He discovered that vacuums are real and exist in the real world.
Although he made enormously important contributions to physics, his contribution to mathematics was limited. The non-existence of a fixed frame of reference is probably the most significant mathematical contribution - as opposed to contribution to physics.
Archimedes made a number of significant contributions to mathematics. These include studies on the sphere and cylinder, the measurement of the circle, and the circumference / diameter ratio.
Archimedes contributed to physics by discovering Archimedes' Principle, the law that an object submerged in a fluid is acted upwards upon by a force equal to the displaced weight. In mathematics, he provided the proof that an area of a portion of a parabola is 4/3 the area of a corresponding triangle.
His contribution in physics was that he proved the presence of gravitational force between any objects and this force increases by increasing the objects' masses.
Father of Physics; light, optics, gravity, astronomy, math and mechanics.
Melecio Mango's contributions to physics includes studies on crystals.
he discovered gravity
Democritus's main contribution to physics was discovery of the atom. He devoted his life to finding out as much as possible to create what is thought to be the first atomic theory.
Newton's mathematical contribution is the mathematical law of Gravity and the calculus. F=mGM/r2, is introduced mathematical physics, modern physics.
Thales, Democritus, Pythagoras, Aristotle, Archimedes, Euclid, Erastosthenes, Hipparchus,
When a body is either partially or entirely immersed in a fluid, Archimedes observed that an upward force (buoyant force) acts upon it, and this force is equal to the weight of the fluid displaced by the body. In physics, this is referred to as Archimedes' Principle.
