I suggest hiring a professional engineer. :wink:

Otherwise, you'll need a lot more detail on the specifics of the car jack.

faiz513: For which component in the hydraulic car jack do you need to know the stress? And what is the diameter and cross-sectional area of that component?

The piston is not going to be the part that fails when the jack is overstressed. Which part do you think will fail first, and how will it fail..... ?

Bit of an elementary question really. Stress is force/unit area.

Unless you want a more specific and/or useful answer more info is needed.
