the small cylinder of a hydraulic press has an area of 2"(squared). If a force of 10# is applied to the small piston, how much is the pressure within the larger cylinder increased, according to pascal's principle.

is that, "force of 10 lbf"? if it is,

pressure is force per unit area, or:

P = F/A

P = 10 lbf/2 in^2

P = 5 psi (pounds per square inch)

so there,, :)
