Flashcards in Hydraulics and circular motion Deck (5)
What are the properties of a liquid?
all the pressure in a liquid is transmitted equally in all directions
How are force multipliers achieved?
The use of different cross-sectional areas on the effort and load side of a hydraulic system enables the system to be used as a force multiplier
What direction does an object moving in a continuous circle accelerate?
it accelerates towards the centre of the circle
the acceleration changes in the direction of the motion of the body, not its speed
What causes the acceleration of the object moving in a circle?
the resultant force causing this accelerated is called the centripetal force
it is always directed towards the centre of the circle
