## Homework Statement

the hydraulic lift for an automobile service garage has a cylinder with a diameter of 8 inches. What pressure must the oil have to be able to lift 6000 lbs?

## Homework Equations

f=pa

area = pi(r^2)

## The Attempt at a Solution

6000 lbs = 26 688 Newtons

8 inches = 3.14 x 16 = 50.265

26 688/50.265 = 530.9 psi (should be 119 psi)
