Archimedes is the greatest natural scientist before the modern scientific revolution and he introduced the mathematical methods to physics and is also a rare ancient scientist who can skillfully manipulate the experimentation confirmation method in physics, and used physics to technology firstly. These features are the basic characteristics of the development of modern physics.
Therefore, he is the first modern type of physics in ancient world and we call him the physics pioneer.
