”Eureka! Eureka!“ – Hieron was the King of Syracuse who tasked the great Greek scientist Archimedes with assessing the purity of the gold in a golden crown, that he had given to a temple as a gift. Hieron correctly suspected, that the goldsmith who made the crown, had adulterated the gold for his own profit, something Archimedes confirmed using in part his principle of displacement. A principle that came to him as he got into his bathtub, the water spilling out as his body displaced it, famously crying out ”Eureka! Eureka“, before running naked through the streets of Syracuse.
