A hydraulic lift consists of a platform that is supported by a cylindrical piston, which resides in a tube connected to a reservoir of hydraulic fluid. The piston and platform have a mass of 300 kg. The input force is generated at a smaller piston connected to the same reservoir. If the radius of the smaller piston is 2 cm, what must be the radius of the larger piston so that a moderate force of 100 N will lift a 1,700 kg car?
