Transcript of Leonardo da Vinci's achievements in the study of water

WATER Leonardo da VInci The Birth of Leonardo da Vinci Leonardo's Understanding of Water Leonardo's Water-related
Inventions The Paddle Boat Leonardo was born on April 15 in the year of 1452, at around 10:30p.m. So much is known about Leonardo's birth, because his grandfather wrote all about it in an old notebook. However, Leonardo was not a normal new born baby. He was an illegitimate son of Ser Piero da Vinci and a peasant woman, Caterina. This means that his parents were not married. Although Ser Piero was a Lawyer, Leonardo would never have the opportunity to follow his foot steps because of being illegitimate. Scuba Gear -Leonardo designed scuba gear for sneak attacks on ships of the enemies.
-Scuba gear was one of the most notable inventions and way advanced for his time!
-The suit was made of leather.
-The mask was made up in the form of a bag, and was attached to two cane tubes that led up to a diving bell of cork floating on the surface.
-The mask was also equipped with a balloon that was valved operated. You could inflate, or deflate the balloon, to make yourself go up or down faster.
-It also included a little valve if you had to go to the bathroom.
-Leonardo created this invention in 1500, in Venice Italy. HYDRAULICS When looked into, it was found that Leonardo’s most researched and recorded topic was hydraulics. This is “the science that deals with the laws governing water or other liquids in motion and their applications in engineering,” according to Dictionary.com. How Did he Get Interested in Water? -Leonardo was the first to understand erosion. He explained it as water gnawing at mountains.
-He understood that water falls from the skies as snow, or rain, and runs into streams or rivers. He knew that the streams and rivers lead to the sea.
-He had known that the reason that shells were fossiled into the mountains was that the mountains were once under water. -Sailors could turn the paddles, making the boat go very fast.
-The way the boat moves would be the same as a kayak, or canoe, but faster, since there would be more paddles.
-Its not certain when Leonardo invented it
- He based his design on the shapes and movements of fish By Haley Simpson Have you ever wondered why Leonardo da Vinci get interested in water? If you have, you're not alone. Many historians have pondered on this subject as well. Some have drawn conclusions that in the time of Leonardo, water had many everyday uses, since gasoline or electricity hadn't come around yet. Others quenched their interest by believing that childhood events made a lasting impression on him. Such events include when he was four years old, and a storm, strong as a hurricane hit the small village of Vinci, or when the Arno River flooded over his banks, and the city of Venice when he was 14. - Leonardo was the first to invent the hand flippers
-They were not put into use until hundreds of years later, when they were reinvented by Ben Franklin in 1720. The Hand Flippers -Leonardo’s invention had all the basic principles of a water turbine
-He invented it in 1480-1482 A.D. The Water Wheel -Leonardo was the first to make sketches of the submarine
-He kept his designs secret, because he did not want war to get any scarier than it was already.
-The drawings look like an empty shell with a tower on top "A Ship to Sink Another Ship" The great Leonardo da Vinci died on May 2, 1519 in Clos Luce. It is not certain of how he died. He was buried in the Monastery of St. Florence in Amboise, France. Although he died 493 years ago, his legacy still lives. The Death of “The Renaissance Man” Bibliography Da Vinci Inventions .
