Using the principle of Pascal's Law, the learner will interpret the gauge readings in a hydraulic system to determine when the system is operating properly under various load conditions and when there is a defect.
Studies show that more than 75 percent of all hydraulic system failures are a direct result of unclean oil. In this interactive object, learners examine the three primary types of hydraulic system filters. A brief quiz completes the activity.
In this animated and interactive object, learners examine a depiction of how force is multiplied by a larger cylinder when pressure from a pump is applied to a smaller cylinder. A short quiz completes the activity.
