"Bridge"
avatar陌染MM"Mathematics Bridge is a bridge in Cambridge, England. It spans the River Cam on the campus of Cambridge University, connecting Queens College on both sides of the River, between Trinity College and Trinity College. Mathematics Bridge is its unofficial name, its official name is just "wooden bridge." The Mathematical Bridge was designed by William ∙ Etherich II and built by James ∙ Essex in 1749. The Mathematical Bridge was rebuilt in 1866 and 1905, but the original design did not change. The bridge has now been replaced by a new one, with wooden strips arranged in an arc that supports the bridge and other transverse components, forming triangular structures to hold the bridge. The structure here is effectively wood-free and waste-free, while borrowing the arches common to stone bridges to consolidate its structure. However, there are several theories about the origin of the design of the mathematical bridge: 1. The design of the bridge is made in China, and the name of the bridge is obtained by using some special mathematical equations. 2. The bridge is designed by ordinary students. The design of the bridge (weight and angle) is very precise, and even a nail is not used. A professor, after seeing the bridge, marvels at it and wants to take it down to understand its design. But when the professor took the bridge down, there was no way to rebuild it with the original design, so he rebuilt it with nails. The bridge was designed and built by Newton. Like the second legend, his design was not nailed. The students saw the design and took it down, but there was no way to rebuild it. But that argument is not true, because Newton died 22 years before the bridge was built."

"School"
avatarken_travel"Price, £3 per person. After entering, the effect is similar to that of looking outside. The library is only open to tourists from 12 to 2 noon. The time is tight. Although it is open, it is not possible to enter the library. Historical celebrities, the most famous is Newton, and the apple tree that followed him on fire. Great Amway, save money and time: Those who are looking for apple trees, don't spend money to buy tickets to enter the college, because it is outside-the right side of the college entrance door (facing the direction of the door)! Here are some more photos of the apple tree from different angles to help you confirm the location"

Cambridge
King's College: Cambridge's most dazzling college King's College is the most central and most eye-catching college of Cambridge. It was founded in 1441 by King Henry VI and was therefore named the "King’s" college. The college's famous alumni include: economist Keynes, mathematician "father of the computation" Turing, the poet Xu Zhimo, among others. King's College is one of the most outstanding examples of Gothic architecture in the UK, especially the College Chapel. Normally, visits to King's College would view the buildings, courtyards, and the college chapel. The ceilings and glass windows of the chapel interior are particularly exquisite, with carved wooden screens. The choir of King’s College is also famous.
