Homework Help: How does a hydraulic machine work?

  1. Jun 7, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    How does a hydraulic machine work?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I know that these work because the pressure is the same throughput the system and that these are multiplier machines because the force is magnified by the magnified area, but I don't understand exactly how they work
