Storyboard Description

Long ago in 2255 BC, King Hiero wanted to look better and more kingly, so he gives the blacksmith 2 kg of gold and told him he would get a reward, but he pocketed some gold and threw in silver! The king was befuddled and got Archimedes to solve the mystery.

Storyboard Text

  • I don't think it's all gold...
  • My liege, I give you the crown!
  • 2255 BC: King Hiero needed a crown, so he asked the Blacksmith to make him one.
  • Archimedes, I need you to find out if the crown is made of all gold. 
  • Yes, my lord.
  • Yes, thank you, my great king.
  • The chest the messengers gave him was filled with 2 kg of gold. When he got it, he got to work right away... but pocketed a bit of the gold, substituting it for silver!
  • I'm going to take a bath, I'll figure things out later.
  • Hmmm... they balance perfectly! But how?
  • King Hiero gave the blacksmith his payment, but was convinced that he was being cheated!
  • Hmmm... If I measure the water that came out, I'll figure it out!
  • The King was very puzzled and unsure, so he calls forth his greatest man: Archimedes. Archimedes was very smart and built war machines and loved birds. He could find out if the crown was made of all gold.
  • Oh, by the way, I'll double your reward for those outstanding war machines you built.
  • He got to work straight away, measuring the crown with a 2 kg bar of gold. They balanced perfectly.
  • But he found out his body displaced the water in the bath! What he found out was a solution to help him figure out the mystery.
