You are using a hydraulic jack to lift a 12000 Newton object. This input piston of your jack has a radius of 0.85 meters and you can exert a maximum of 3500 Newtons on it. How large does the radius of the output piston need to be in order to lift this object without failing?

  • PHYSICS -

    R^2 * Force = constant
    (same number for input and output pistons)

    R^2 * 12000 = (0.85)^2 * 3500

    Solve for output piston radius, R
