    The digging bucket on a large mechanical excavator is moved by a piston sliding within a single hydraulic cylinder. According to the manufacturer, the hydraulic fluid in the cylinder is pressurized to 1000 psi (6.895 x 10^6 Pa or 68 atm) by a pump. The cylinder has a diameter of 0.165 m and a stroke of 1.36 m. Determine the maximum force that can be exerted by the cylinder.
