Build a hydraulic platform and investigate Pascal’s law.

Ages 8 - 12+


Learning outcome: Industrial and construction machines use hydraulics to easily lift heavy objects. Learn how this can be achieved by applying the Pascal’s Law on a hydraulic press. Understand what hydrostatic pressure is and how it gets stronger by depth.  

Experiment Method Description: Build a hydraulic platform and investigate Pascal’s law. Use syringes of different size to emulate how pistons can transfer pressure inside a tube. Add a load on the platform and push the pistons to lift it. Prove that pushing the smaller piston can magnify the outcoming force and lift a weight with less effort. 

Components: Engino parts, plastic skins and paper outlines, syringes, water, few pebbles.
