THE CROWN !!!!!!
THE WORKSHOP !!!!!
The king thinks his smith has cheated him and given him a crown made out of silver and not gold. He asks Archimedes to investigate.
Gold is more dense than silver. Archimedes does not know how to calculate the volume of the awkwardly shaped crown. When he jumps in to the bath he sees that water is displaced. "EUREKA!!", he screamed.
Archimedes Measures the volume of crown and then calculates the density of the metal used to make it. He can then compare the density with that of silver and gold.The kings crown was not made from gold but made from silver.
