# A hydraulic press has a ram of 290 mm diameter and a plunger of 4.8 cm diameter. Find the weight lifted by hydraulic press in Kilo Newton, when the force applied at the plunger is 4×10-4 MN. If diameters of plunger and ram increased by 15% then find the weight lifted by hydraulic press. Justify the answer with respect to the diameter.
