Hydro Dynamics - Modern Era (c. 1600–1870) - Blaise Pascal

Blaise Pascal

Blaise Pascal (1623–1662) studied fluid hydrodynamics and hydrostatics, centered on the principles of hydraulic fluids. His inventions include the hydraulic press, which multiplied a smaller force acting on a larger area into the application of a larger force totaled over a smaller area, transmitted through the same pressure (or same change of pressure) at both locations. Pascal's law or principle states that for an incompressible fluid at rest, the difference in pressure is proportional to the difference in height and this difference remains the same whether or not the overall pressure of the fluid is changed by applying an external force. This implies that by increasing the pressure at any point in a confined fluid, there is an equal increase at every other point in the container, i.e., any change in pressure applied at any point of the fluid is transmitted undiminished throughout the fluids.

Famous quotes by blaise pascal:

    God alone is our true good, and since we have forsaken him, it is a strange thing that there is nothing in nature which has not been serviceable in taking his place: the stars, the heavens, earth, the elements, plants, cabbages, leeks, animals, insects, calves, serpents, fever, war, famine, vices, adultery, incest.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    The great mass of people judge well of things, for they are in natural ignorance, which is man’s true state.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    The greater intellect one has, the more originality one finds in men. Ordinary persons find no difference between men.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    A trifle consoles us, for a trifle distresses us.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    We run heedlessly into the abyss after putting something in front of us to stop us seeing it.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
