A hydraulic jack has two pistons. The diameters of the larger piston and smaller piston are 15 cm and 1.25 cm respectively.It is necessary to lift a 2000 pound car. How large a force must be applied to the small piston? Now assume that a small piston moves through a distance of 10 cm. By what distance will the large piston move?

Solution Preview

The hydraulic jack works on the principle of Pascal's law:
pressure (p1) = pressure (p2)
=>F1/A1 = F2/A2
where F1 and F2 are the forces and A1 and A2 are the corresponding sides cross-sectional ...

Solution Summary

The solution shows the formulas and calculations with explanations to arrive at the answer.

A piston (1) as shown in the figure has a diameter of 0.25 inches, andpiston (2) has a diameter of 1.5 inches. In the absence of friction, determine the force F necessary to support the 500-lb weight.

What force must be applied to a small cylinder piston with a diameter of 0.32 m to lift a car weighing 12,000N that is supported by the piston in a large cylinder that has a diameter of 1.4m? Assume that there is a closed chamber in the common between the two pistons and that the chamber is filled with hydraulic oil.

1. The small piston of a hydraulic lift has a cross-sectional area of 3.00 cm^2 and its large piston has a cross-sectional area of 200 cm^2. What force must be applied to the small piston for the lift to raise a load of 15.0 kN? (In service stations, this force is usually exerted by compressed air.)

A single acting refrigeration reciprocating compressor has six pistons pitched 100mm from each other on the shaft. The pair cranks on VW formation are positioned on 120 degrees apart from each other on the shaft and compression- suction sequence is in the order of 1-6, 2-5, and 3-4. Calculate the out of balance torque when the s

Hydraulic Piston.
The basic design of any hydraulic system is two connected fluid-filled cylinders of different cross-sectional area. Each cylinder is fitted with a close-fitting piston. Ideally, the fluid is incompressible and the container does not expand, so that when one piston is compressed, it

A combined air filled, spring loaded cylinder has a frictionless piston of area 0.012 m^2 that rests against the spring. The spring loaded end of the cylinder is open to atmosphere. The spring force in terms of pistonmovement is given by:
Spring Force = k X

A hydraulic cylinder is 100mm diameter and is fed by a pipe 15mm in diameter. If the piston in the cylinder moves forward at a rate of 0.2ms^1, calculate the velocity of the oil in the pipe line.
