## Hydraulics worksheet

A varied group of questions, which encourages pupils to understand hydraulics from a fundamental level (i.e. considering liquid particle properties). This is supplemented by a numerical question and an invitation for students to describe another hydraulic machine of their own invention. This resource works well with the Hydraulics Thought Experiment, and is supported by the Hydraulics Helpsheet (both also uploaded).

Fairly simple worksheet covering hydraulic systems.

#### Pressure and hydraulics worksheet

A worksheet that assesses the pupils' understanding of hydraulics and builds up the levels of questioning and calculations (hopefully!). The questions go from easy to hard, so the pupils in a class should work through at their own rate, and hopefully there's a challenge there for most pupils. I hope you find it useful. Any feedback will be appreciated. Thanks

#### Hydraulics Thought Experiment

A ready-to-use presentation (view in full screen mode), which is an interactive thought experiment for the whole class to play together.
General idea - to understand how liquid pressure arises from liquid particles, model each particle as a student/marble (as shown in pdf) in a container. Numerical values assume each particle receives 100N of force.
The presentation is rounded off by linking the model to real liquids, and an engineering application (car lift).

#### Hydraulics 'Push of War'

A quick, effective, practical demonstration of force multiplication in hydraulic systems. The image shows the only apparatus required (note that the system is filled with water).The initial position of the small piston is at the midpoint of its syringe (as shown). With the apparatus held as straight as possible (to avoid spillage), one student pushes the big syringe, another pushes the small syringe. They compete to move the small piston to the bottom/top of its syringe respectively. Ask the students to switch sides, and compete again.
