 Hydraulic
Cylinder
Calculations:
 For
a
set
operating
pressure,
hydraulic
cylinders
generally
don’t
produce
as
 much
pulling
force
as
pushing
force
due
to
the
reduced
effective
piston
area
on
 the
pull
side
caused
by
the
rod.

Given
an
operating
pressure
of
2,000
psi
and
 a
hydraulic
cylinder
with
a
piston
diameter
of
6
in.
and
a
rod
diameter
of
3
 in.,
find
the
maximum
available
pushing
and
pulling
force
available.

 Assume
the
effective
piston...
