In a hydraulic system the piston on the left has a diameter of 4.7 cm and a mass of 1.7 kg. The piston on the right has a diameter of 12 cm and a mass of 3.7 kg. If the density of the fluid is 750 kg/m3, what is the height difference h between the two pistons?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm not even sure what equation I could use to get started on this problem. I was looking at the equation P2=P1+pgh but the pressure would be the same at both points.
