Pascal's barrel

  1. Nov 6, 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(from Spain) .

    You nearly did it! The maximum height for water should be around 10.3 meters. :D
