Pascals principle sounds simple, but I'm a bit confused on this.
A cylinder that's 24" in diameter by 5 ft in height filled with 117 gallons(980 lb) that's connected to 1" diameter pipe going up 300 ft high filled with 12 gallons(100 lb).
I know that with deeper depth the water pressure increases, but I'm a little lost on this question about how much lb-force I'd need to lift this water upwards.
I have 129 gallons of water or (1080 lb) in total weight weighing down on a piston that's set at the very bottom of the 24"D cylinder. Considering the height of the smaller pipe is 300 ft high, would I need an equal amount of weight (1080 lb) force up to have this piston at equilibrium?
And to lift this piston up I'd assume the lb-force should be slightly over equilibrium if I used a lever.
