Hello
I posted something similar to this last week but maybe I was a touch vague as I didn't receive any good answers, So here some more details.
I'm looking for the equations required to calculate this and also any variations in the size of the cylinders/distance lifted
If I have 2 cylinders:
Cylinder A 10cm diamter, 10cm high
Cylinder B 1cm diamter, 20cm high
They are both at ground level and conected via a 1cm pipe at the base of the cylinders
A, How can I calculate the force required on cylinder A to lift the water in cylinder B a given distance, i.e 5 cm
B, How can I calculate the required on cylinder B to completely empty cylinder A into (and overflowing B at 20cm high)
Yours hopefully
