Statement of a problem № 11346


In the process of changing a flat tire, a motorist uses a hydraulic jack. She begins by applying a force of 45 N to the input piston, which has a radius r1. As a result, the output plunger, which has a radius r2, applies a force to the car. The ratio r2/r1 has a value of 8.3. Ignore the height difference between the input piston and output plunger and determine the force that the output plunger applies to the car.
