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.

  • Science -

    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,, :)
