Pascal's law: Pressure exerted anywhere in a confined incompressible fluid is transmitted equally in all directions throughout the fluid such that the pressure ratio (initial difference) remains the same.

The law was established by French mathematician Blaise Pascal hence it is called as Pascals's law.

What is Boyle-pascal law?

Describe it in detail.

Boyle's Law states that for a fixed amount of gas kept at a fixed temperature, pressure and volume are inversely proportional (while one increases, the other decreases). PV = k.

Pascal's Law states that a change in the pressure of an enclosed incompressible fluid is conveyed undiminished to every part of the fluid and to the surfaces of its container.
