Pascal's barrel

  • #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 .

Thanks,Alberto

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
