Hydraulics Pressure = Force
a) calculate pressure P= F = 20 = 4N/cm2
force - N
A 5
area m2
pressure - PASCALS = 1N/m2
Next -
20 N
Force= P x A Small force Large force

Pivot Load
The further away from the pivot
you apply the force the easier it
is to turn the lever. A lever is a
simple machine that uses a

Force = pressure x Variables
area eg. 3n/m x 4m = 12N Independent - something you can change
Dependent- changes for you to measure
Control- something you keep the same
Moments Accelerate
The turning effect of a force is called the
moment.The size of the moment is given Decelerate

Distance from Pivot(M) Constant speed

If F2 x D2 = F1 x D1 then it balances!
