Spool Valve Connection: In this experiment you will be required to connect the hydraulic cylinder to the manual control valve through a spool valve. Trace hydraulic lines on the schematic in Figure 1 for the appropriate connections to do this. For spool valve connections reference the included notes and video. List three key aspects that need to be understood with respect to a spool valve, how it works, and why it is useful. (1) (2) (3) Figure 1: Hydraulic Test Bench Schematic

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
