Hydraulic Crane workshop overview

The hands-on project serves as the best combination of hydraulics and lever with its types. It describes the concepts of hydraulics, pressure and simple machines. It demonstrates Pascal’s law for describing pressure transmission and how it is used by simple machines. Students by doing this activity learn about different kinds of lever and their practical application.
