    Pascal’s barrel experiment.An experiment about the pressure.
    The theme is about the experiments performed by the scientists. The units of respective findings(inventions) were named after the scientists.
    (Previous question: Inductance:Henry)
    This question:Pressure:Pascal

    Pascal’s barrel? Barrel explodes because of pressure created by pouring water in vertical tube.

    Pascal’s barrel by Blaise Pascal

    Theme attempt :
    Creationist Scientists: Scientists who were pro-bible/pro-church

    Faraday, Henry, Pascal – fits so far.

    Blaise Pascal demonstrating Pascal’s Law (i.e. pressure applied at one point in an incompressible liquid is transmitted equally in all directions throughout the liquid without loss). The experiment was called Pascal’s Barrel Experiment

    Almost forgot this site existed.
    Pascal’s Barrel.
    And… All I can do is repeat my previouus guess for the theme. Guys who have derived SI units named after them.
