The maximum gauge pressure in a hydraulic lift is 16.8 atm.?
What is the largest size vehicle (kg) it can lift if the diameter of the output line is 25.6 cm?

The area of the "output line" (also known as the lift cylinder) is:
D = 25.6 cm = .256m
The area is:
A = π*D^2/4 = .0515 m^2
A standard atmosphere is 101.325 kPa = 101.325 kN/m^2
The pressure is: 16.8*101.325*10^3 = 1.702*10^6 N/m^2
The maximum lift is just less than:
F = P*A = 1.702*10^6*.0515 = 87.6 kN, or 87600 N
This is 87600/9.8 = 8941 kg

"pooper's" logic became sturdy, yet his conversion ingredient for atm to Pa (N/m²)became off 3 orders of cost; a million atm ? one 0 one.3 kPa word the "ok", kilo, meaning one thousand So multiply his answer via one thousand
