Given: (a) Water at a temperature of 20°C Equations and Assumptions: (1) From Table A.5, Pv = 2340 N/m2 abs Solution: Cavitation (boiling) of water occurs when the local pressure drops below the vapor pressure; therefore, a pressure at or below 2340 N/m2 abs would cause the water to boil. Discussion: When the pressure drops below the vapor pressure, bubbles will begin forming as part of the cavitation process. Problem: As shown, a mouse can use the mechanical advantage provided by a hydraulic machine to lift up an elephant. (a) Derive an algebraic equation that gives the mechanical advantage of the hydraulic machine...
