    to a higher position). It shows the important
    inventions of Archimedes, a system which is
    is used in various applications such as mining,
    irrigation and agriculture. It has been used for
    centuries and is still used today. It consists of a

    lower end) dipped in the water. The rotation of
    the device causes the water to rise in the pipe.
