Solution: A hydrolic lift system is power by lowering a weight onto an "input pad" with an area of 100 cm2, transmitting the pressure through hydrolic fluid, which is then used to lift a 10 m  2 platform that a car rests on. If a 2000 kg car is on top of the platform, how much weight must be placed on the "input pad" to raise the car?
