For the system shown in Fig. 13-3, the cylinder on the left, at L, has a mass of 600 kg and a cross-sectional area of 800 cm2. The piston on the right, at S, has a cross-sectional area of 25 cm2 and a negligible weight. If the apparatus is filled with oil (p = 0.78 g/cm3), find the force F required to hold the system in equilibrium as shown.

Solution:
For the system shown in Fig. 13-3, the cylinder on the left, at L, has a mass of
