Transcript of Hydraulic Lift

Handy Hydraulics

Step 1
Arrange procedures and materials in the order that we will use and complete them. Follow the directions on the science buddies hydraulic lift page. Listed here-
Step 2
Shop for materials in local hardware stores and create a list to ensure that we don't forget or duplicate anything.
Information 1
To make a hydraulic lift using syringes, wall plates and other materials. We want our lift to be able to handle at least 500 grams.
Final Product
What it was supposed to look like
Step 3
Follow procedures listed, take pictures and test different sized syringes.
Forms of Energy-
Our project displays hydro energy because we used a liquid (water.) The liquid is the main point in this experiment. Hydro energy is the energy displayed most in this project due to the guide lines on the procedures. This project also shows kinetic energy when the water is pushed though the tubing into the master syringe. Potential energy was used when the liquid was setting in the syringes.
Information 3
Energy Transfer-
The energy is transferred from the master syringe to the tubing and into the slave syringe. Energy is transferred in the system due to work because you exert force on the plunger of the master syringe to move the hydraulic liquid. One example of heat energy is when the water is moving through the tube continuously, the water's temperature could be increasing.
Information 4
Conservation of Energy-
The hydraulic liquid which was pushed by the plunger was never eliminated or used up, it was always continuously moved around the various parts of the lift and the tubing. There was always water pressure throughout the structure.
Information 2
Energy Transformation-
Potential energy is transformed into kinetic energy when the plunger on the syringe applies force to the liquid pushing it through the tubing. Kinetic energy is transformed into potential energy when the water has no force applied to it.
