Pascal's barrel

  1. Nov 4, 2007 #1
    Hello, I would like to know if Pascal really made the experiment of the barrel.
    I have looked for in his treaties(traitez de liqueurs) but I have not seen any reference to the barrel. Somebody knows if Pascal speaks somewhere of the barrel?
    I tried to make the experiment with a tube of 10m but the barrel did not burst. Somebody has made this experiment?
    Excuses by my poor English .

    Maybe your barrel is stronger than Pascal's.
    Put "Pascal's barrel" into google for references.

    Yes.I think the same.Maybe,the Pascal's barrel was less stronger.In Google I have not found the document of any person who has made it.Either in texts of Pascal.Somebody has seen it?

    Sorry for my English from Spain
