(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The small piston of a hydraulic lift has a cross sectional area of (2.8 cm^2), and the large piston connected to it has an area of (17 cm^2). What force of F must be applied to the smaller piston to maintain a load of (28000 N)?

2. Relevant equations

A_1 * V_1 = A_2 * V_2

3. The attempt at a solution

Since the volumes are the same, I set the A * F to be set equal to each other on both sides and solved....but I'm not seeing something in the unit conversion.....Idk what to do.
