Transcript of Syringe Hydraulic Arm

Physics project: Syringe Hydraulic Arm
Team :
Atishay Sood
Dhruv Garg
The basic idea of any hydraulic system is very simple: Force that is applied at one point is transmitted to another point using an incompatible fluid. The fluid is almost and oil of some sort.
Gathering the Parts Together…
Use PVC-tubes or pinewood to make the arm strong.
Syringe should not be held too tightly.
Use clothes hangers for the gripper to make it more flexible.
Place a car that worked with solar energy to make the arm move and reach farther objects.
Create a base for the controlling syringes and not having them hanging freely.
Hydraulics in theory
Our Hydraulic
In conclusion, hydraulics is a branch of physics and engineering that deals with the study of the mechanical properties of fluids. All this depends on the forces that are interposed with the mass strength and push the same. It was learned that to achieve a good project, teamwork is extremely important because several minds, develop different ideas coming together to make this project. Our prototype was done mainly with plastic tubes, but when we were finishing that prototype we decided to create an more improved arm because the PVC-tubes were creating a lot of weight. We ended up doing it with light pine wood to reduce the weight of the arm and reducing the size. Finally, we developed high knowledge of what engineering could be of us in the future which is designing, improving and working as a team.
Thank you for your attention

The science behind hydraulics is called Pascal's principle. Essentially, because the liquid in the pipe is incompressible, the pressure must stay constant all the way through it, even when you're pushing it hard at one end or the other. Now pressure is defined as the force acting per unit of area. So if we press down with a small force on a small area, at the narrow end of the tube on the left, there must be large force acting upward on the larger area piston on the right to keep the pressure equal. That's how the force becomes magnified.
