Hydraulics

By: George of the Jungle

Intro

Have you ever wondered how strong Hydraulics are?  Well, let me tell you now, they are very strong for their size.  Hydraulics is as strong and as small as a 90lb sixth grade lifting around 900lbs instead of around 100lbs.  I, for one, think that that is very impressive for something so small. Hydraulics is a very interesting piece of technology.  It can make almost anything stronger than it really is, and not just a little stronger, a lot stronger. They arenŐt very hard to put on too.  Say you want to make a tractor stronger.  Then you would simply just put Hydraulics on the tractor and the tractor would be a lot stronger.  I think that is very interesting, and if you donŐt, well then you are probably not human because that is very amazing.  Hydraulics is one of the most useful inventions.  You may know some places where people use hydraulics, but you may not know some of the places that people use Hydraulics.  You may not even know that you could be using Hydraulics in your every day life.  The first thing I will tell you about is the history of hydraulics, second, I will tell you an invention that we use in our every day life that uses hydraulics that is a very important invention, and last but not least I will tell you the price of hydraulics and where you can buy one if you want one.  I really hope you enjoy reading my report.

The History of Hydraulics

One of the most frequently asked questions when you are talking about something is who invented it.  Well, this paragraph will tell many things about the person who invented Hydraulics.  I will tell you now, it is a very, letŐs go with, ŇinterestingÓ life.  Hope you enjoy.   According to Mary Bellis (www.inventors.about.com) the person who invented hydraulics was a man named Joseph Bramah.  Joseph was born on April 14, 1748 in Stainborogh, Yorkshire, England, to two farmers. (www.nnbd.com) When Joseph grew up, he was an inventor and a locksmith.  If you donŐt know what a locksmith is, it is someone who can pick locks.  So if your keys get locked in your car or house or somewhere, a locksmith can open your car or your house or wherever your keys are, they can pick the lock and get you your keys back.  But that part doesnŐt really matter, the part that matters is that Joseph was an inventor.  He probably invented many things, but the one we are focused on now is, can you guess.  You probably can so I will just finish the sentence.  The invention made by Joseph that we are focused on now is hydraulics.  You will learn more about hydraulics in the rest of my Technology Report on Hydraulics.  

Now I will tell you what hydraulics is and does.  Hydraulics is an invention that can make machines, tools, and things we use in our every day lives, stronger using liquids as fuel.  You can use hydraulics on many things to make almost anything stronger than it is using hydraulics.  So if you own a business and have a lot of money and you need to make something stronger, than hydraulics will probably make whatever you want to make stronger, stronger.   

 

 

Last, but not least, I will tell you a problem Hydraulics solved.   One of the many, many problems that hydraulics solved is that now you can pick up heavy objects using hydraulics.  You just need to go to the store, buy one, figure out how to use it, put on the machine or tool you want to put the hydraulics on, and then you can pick up almost anything.  So the problem it solved is that now it is easier to pick up really heavy objects, and it will probably get easier too.

 

An Invention That Uses Hydraulics That We Use In Our Every Day Lives

In this paragraph I am going to tell you one of the most important things in our lives that uses hydraulics, and what that thing does, and where it is located. One of the most important inventions that uses hydraulics, is something most people use in their every day lives.  That thing is the brake in your car.  In case you donŐt know what brakes are, they are an invention that you can put in your car and when you are driving and want to stop than you push on the brakes.  The brakes are located where your feet are and they are next to the gas foot thing.  As you can see, brakes are something important in our every day lives and if they use hydraulics then they can stop a lot faster than other brakes that donŐt use hydraulics are.  (www.howstuffworks.com)

 

Buying

Now I will tell you how much Hydraulics costs if you want one.  Now, if you want to buy Hydraulics (which I donŐt know why you wouldnŐt want one) and you donŐt want it to be complicated to get one, then you should go to eBay.  I found how much hydraulics cost in about 3 minutes, so as you can see, it was really easy.  Now letŐs cut to the chase, if you want to buy hydraulics, they are around $5,000 or more.  That is a lot donŐt you think.  Like I said earlier, you probably need to earn a business or something that gets you a lot of money to get hydraulics.  But let me tell you, it is 99.9999999% worth it.  (www.eBay.com) 

Conclusion

Now, I am going to give you a conclusion.  By now I hope agree with me that Hydraulics is a very interesting invention.  I hope you enjoyed all three of my topics.  I hope you enjoyed the history of hydraulics, I hope you liked that if you ever wanted hydraulics, you would know where to get one and how much it costs, and I really hope you enjoyed learning that you use hydraulics almost every day when you are in your car.  Heck with it, I hope you enjoyed my whole ENTIRE report.  Well, hope you enjoyed it, bye.
