Hydraulic 35291

The hydraulic press has pistons with a capacity of 20 cm2 and 800 cm2. How much force acts on the larger piston if we work on the smaller piston with a force of 100 N?

Correct answer:

F2 =  4000 N

Step-by-step explanation:

S1=20 cm2 S2=800 cm2 F1=100 n  p1=p2 F1/S1=F2/S2  F2=F1 S1S2=100 20800=4000 N
