Problems on Weight Lifted by Hydraulic Pressure  Fluid Mechanics 1  Summary and Q&A
TL;DR
The video explains how hydraulic presses work using Pascal's law, and calculates the weight lifted by a hydraulic press with a given force.
Key Insights
 😑 A hydraulic press operates on the principle of Pascal's law, which states that pressure in a fluid is transmitted equally in all directions.
 🪠 The intensity of pressure at the plunger of a hydraulic press can be calculated by dividing the force applied at the plunger by the area of the plunger.
 👻 Pascal's law ensures that the same pressure is applied at the ram, allowing for the lifting of heavy loads.
 🏋️ The weight lifted by a hydraulic press can be calculated by dividing the force applied at the ram by the area of the ram.
 🏋️ In the given example, a force of 500 newton applied at the plunger lifts a load of 22.22 kilo newton.
 😑 Hydraulic presses are used in various industries for tasks such as forming, bending, and pressing objects.
 😑 The use of oil as the fluid in a hydraulic press allows for smoother transmission of force and reduced friction.

Questions & Answers
Q: What is the purpose of a hydraulic press?
A hydraulic press is used to lift heavy loads by applying a smaller force at the plunger, which is transmitted through oil to the ram, resulting in the lifting of the load.
Q: What is Pascal's law?
Pascal's law states that the intensity of pressure in a fluid remains the same in all directions. This means that the pressure applied at the plunger of the hydraulic press is also applied at the ram due to the transmission of force through the oil.
Q: How is the weight lifted by a hydraulic press calculated?
The weight lifted by a hydraulic press can be calculated by dividing the force applied at the ram by the area of the ram. This calculation is based on Pascal's law, which states that the intensity of pressure at the plunger is equal to the intensity of pressure at the ram.
Q: What units are used to measure pressure in the video?
The video uses newton per meter square (N/m²) as the unit to measure pressure. This unit is also known as pascal (Pa).
Summary & Key Takeaways

The video describes a hydraulic press, which consists of a plunger and a ram, and how force applied at the plunger is transmitted through oil to lift heavy loads.

Pascal's law states that the intensity of pressure remains the same in all directions within a fluid.

Using Pascal's law and the given force at the plunger, the video calculates the weight lifted by the hydraulic press as 22.22 kilo newton.
