## Working Principle of HYDRAULIC JACK or

HYDRAULIC PRESS
October 26, 2009
HYDRAULIC JACK or HYDRAULIC PRESS
The hydraulic jack is a device used for li%ing heavy loads by the application of much smaller force. It is based
on Pascals law, which states that intensity of pressure is transmitted equally in all directions through a mass
of fluid at rest.

WORKING PRINCIPLE: The working principle of a hydraulic jack may be explained with the help of Fig. 23.
Consider a ram and plunger, operating in two cylinders of di0erent diameters, which are interconnected at the
bottom, through a chamber, which is filled with some liquid.

Fig. Hydraulic jack Fig. Plunger
Let
W= Weight to be li%ed,
F = Force applied on the plunger,
A = Area of ram, and
a = Area of plunger.
Pressure intensity produced by the force F, p = F/Area of plunger = F/a
As per Pascals law, the above intensity p will be equally transmitted in all directions.
Therefore, The pressure intensity on ram = p = F/a = W/A or W= F(A/a)
Above Equation indicates that by applying a small force F on the plunger, a large force W may be developed by
the ram.
Mechanical advantage of press = A/a
If the force in the plunger is applied by a lever which has a mechanical advantage (L/l) then total mechanical
The ratio (L/l) is known as leverage of press.

## Hydraulic jack may be employed for the following jobs:

Metal press work (to press sheet metal to any required shape).
Drawing and pushing rods.
Bending and straightening any metal piece .
Packing press.

Yeah its good and it helped in in my physics project. I am in class VIII and it helped me very much.
THanks a lot.

A neighbor associated with my own urged me personally to see your website month or so ago, due to
the fact both of us like precisely the same things and I need to tell you Im certainly impressed.

it makes our way very easy to resolve or perform any cumbersome activity.

Makes it incredibly easy to understand and apply the mechanisms and principles. I didnt even
realise you could apply the mechanism of pivot and lever to multiply the mechanical advantage.
Thankyou.
One improvement: seperate out and number the diagrams so its immediately obvious what goes
where (and second diagram is a bitsquashed).
