# BIENT PRESSURE: Can Vacuum Pressure be Multiplied?

• Idea04
In summary, hydraulic multiplication allows a small piston to create an increased upward force on a large piston. However, pulling upward on the small piston to create a vacuum does not result in a multiplied vacuum force pulling the large piston downward. Vacuum pressure cannot be multiplied in the same way fluid pressure can be multiplied.

## Homework Statement

I know with hydraulic multiplication a small piston can create an increased force upward on a large piston. But if you take the small piston and pull upward on it creating a vacuum. Would the large piston have a multiplied vacuum force pulling it downward.

Perhaps you could explain the configuration you have in mind. If you pull on a hydraulic cylinder, you will push fluid out in front and draw hydraulic fluid in on the back side.

I'm wondering if vacuum pressure can be multiplied in the same way fluid pressure can be multiplied.

No. Vacuum is the absence of pressure. There is a pressure limit for a vaccum: zero. So the greatest net pressure you can create by creating a vacuum is the ambient pressure.

## What is hydrauling multiplication?

Hydrauling multiplication is a mathematical concept that combines the principles of hydraulics and multiplication. It involves using the force of fluid pressure to multiply two numbers together.

## How does hydrauling multiplication work?

In hydrauling multiplication, two numbers are placed on opposite sides of a hydraulic system. The force of the fluid pressure on one side is used to move a piston, which then multiplies the other number on the opposite side of the system.

## What are the benefits of hydrauling multiplication?

Hydrauling multiplication allows for the multiplication of large numbers with minimal effort. It also has applications in engineering and construction, where hydraulics are commonly used.

## Are there any limitations to hydrauling multiplication?

One limitation of hydrauling multiplication is that it requires a hydraulic system, which can be expensive and complex. It also relies on the accuracy and precision of the system to produce accurate results.

## What are some real-world applications of hydrauling multiplication?

Hydrauling multiplication has been used in various industries, such as construction, engineering, and manufacturing. It has also been used in the design of mechanical systems, such as pumps and hydraulic presses.
