Students read how to calculate the size of a hydraulic cylinder that is required for a particular application. Mathematical formulas are provided.
This animated lesson shows how to calculate the amount of force generated by hydraulic cylinders.
In this animated and interactive object, learners examine the basic parts and the linear movement of a hydraulic cylinder. A brief quiz completes the activity.
In this interactive object, learners read how to determine the force created by a hydraulic cylinder during extension and retraction. 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.
In this animated object, students view a depiction of how force is transmitted by hydraulic cylinders and confined fluid.
