In this inquiry activity, students will explore and understand what pneumatic and hydraulic systems are and how they are currently used. Students will produce culminating pieces of work summarizing and extending their knowledge of Pascal’s Law. They will investigate the viscosity of fluids in relation to the efficiency and functioning of a hydraulic system of their design. Students will ask questions about their systems and develop and implement experiments to provide solutions to their queries.
