  • Beakman's World: Demonstrating Hydraulics

    Beakman explains that construction equipment is "strong" because of hydraulics. He demonstrates that when you try to compress a liquid, it has a limit.

Using this, they show how Liza can push down on one hydraulic shaft and this will cause the rat to be lifted. Basically, she does more work with less energy.
