A hydraulic press has an input cylinder 1 m in diameter and an output cylinder 2 meters in diameter. Assuming 100% efficiency, find the force exerted by the output piston when a force of 10 Newtons is applied to the input piston.
If the input piston is moved through 5 meters, how far is the output piston moved?
F2/F1 = S2/S1 =πR^2/πr^2= (R/r)^2
