History of Science

Hey, Im doing a paper on Pascal's work in physics, but most of the sites that google gives me concern mostly about his religious life and only briefly talk about his scientific accomplishments. I need help finding a site that gives in depth detail of his experiments with the barometer, air pressure, and fluidity-- how he came about discovering air pressure and developing Pascal's law. Thanks!

  2. The one about Pascal's Law just gives sites about what it is, and its applications, not what Pascal himself did to discover it, which is what I need.
