Learners examine how a force may be considered to act at any point along its line of action as long as the magnitude and direction of the force remain unchanged. Numerical verification is provided.
This animated lesson shows how to calculate the amount of force generated by hydraulic cylinders.
In this interactive object, learners read how to determine the force created by a hydraulic cylinder during extension and retraction. A brief quiz completes the activity.
