In a hydraulic piston set up, one circular piston has a diameter of 2 cm,while the other piston has a diameter of 6cm. Calculate the ratio of the force exerted by the larger piston to the force applied to the smaller piston?

  • physics -

    The force ratio is the area ratio, since both pistons experience the same pressure.
