Pascal


     Blaise Pascal was a French Scientist. From his childhood, he showed more interest in geometry. With his curiosity and analytical thinking, he proposed a theory that the sum of the three angles in a triangle is equal to the sum of two right angles. His father an accountant. To help his father in calculations he designed a machine, later on, it leads to developing a calculator. 

His contributions to the Science:


  • Pascal showed that the sum of the three angles in a triangle is equal to the sum of two right angles.
  • He designed a theorem called the Universal theorem of geometry.
  • Pascal designed a machine to do calculations like sums, subtractions, multiplications, and divisions.
  • He is famous for his theory of Pascal's law in physics i.e. pressure at a point in a liquid is the same in all directions. 
  • Based on Pascal's law Hydraulic lifts and Hydraulic breaks are designed.
  • He did research on Geometry, Probability, Hydrostatics, Integral calculus, etc.
  • Galileo stated that the air has weight. Pascal proved Galileo's statement experimentally.
