The

**pascal**(symbol: Pa) is the SI derived unit of**pressure**used to quantify internal**pressure**, stress, Young's modulus, and ultimate tensile strength.The unit, named after Blaise**Pascal**, is defined as one newton per square metre and is equivalent to 10 barye (Ba) in the CGS system.**Pascal**'s barrel is the name of a hydrostatics experiment allegedly performed by Blaise**Pascal**in 1646. In the experiment,**Pascal**supposedly inserted a long vertical tube into a barrel filled with water. When water was poured into the vertical tube, the increase in hydrostatic**pressure**caused the barrel to burst.People also ask

**Pascal**contributed to several fields in physics, most notably the fields of fluid mechanics and**pressure**. In honour of his scientific contributions, the name**Pascal**has been given to the SI unit of**pressure**and**Pascal**'s law (an important principle of hydrostatics).- Theology, Mathematics, Philosophy, Physics

Some of these derive from a unit of force divided by a unit of area; the SI unit of

**pressure**, the**pascal**(Pa), for example, is one newton per square metre (N/m 2); similarly, the pound-force per square inch is the traditional unit of**pressure**in the imperial and U.S. customary systems.Atmospheric

**pressure**, also known as barometric**pressure**(after the barometer), is the**pressure**within the atmosphere of Earth.The standard atmosphere (symbol: atm) is a unit of**pressure**defined as 101,325 Pa (1,013.25 hPa; 1,013.25 mbar), which is equivalent to 760 mm Hg, 29.9212 inches Hg, or 14.696 psi.**Pressure**is also related to density. If a solid or a fluid is more dense, it has a larger weight, and therefore exerts a larger force, over the same area. The SI unit of**pressure**is the**Pascal**(Pa) named after French physicist Blaise**Pascal**, who did much work on**pressure**. 1**pascal**= a force of 1 newton per square meter.
