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:

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

    I have only made this [letter] longer because I have not had the time to make it shorter.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    There are only two kinds of men: the righteous who think they are sinners and the sinners who think they are righteous.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    Those great efforts of intellect, upon which the mind sometimes touches, are such that it cannot maintain itself there. It only leaps to them, not as upon a throne, forever, but merely for an instant.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    Vanity of science. Knowledge of physical science will not console me for ignorance of morality in time of affliction, but knowledge of morality will always console me for ignorance of physical science.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
