A hydraulic chamber in which a spring (spring constant = 1550 N/m) is attached to the input piston (A1 = 14.1 cm^2), and a rock of mass 36.1 kg rests on the output plunger (A2 = 67.8 cm^2).

The piston and plunger are nearly at the same height, and each has a negligible mass. By how much is the spring compressed from its unstrained position?

Expert Answer

Step 1

The pressure in the input piston and output plunger is same.
