In a hydraulic lift, the radii of the pistons are 2.93 cm and 10.1 cm. A car weighing W = 11.0 kN is to be lifted by the force of the large piston.

(a) What force Fa must be applied to the small piston? N

(b) When the small piston is pushed in by 10.4 cm, how far is the car lifted?

(c) Find the mechanical advantage of the lift, which is the ratio W / Fa.

I really don't understand how to do this please explain step for step how to do this! I would really appreciate it, thank you.
