Benefits And Costs Of Fluid Power

Fluids compared to gas and solids move more efficiently on their own since their particles are spread out and can move around unlike solids where their molecules are stuck together meaning they can’t spread meaning they cannot move. . Fluids also don’t wear out or neither do they wear out the machine they operate with. Fluids can be heated or cooled to change the viscosity has the molecule of the fluid makes contact with a solid.. Costs of fluid power are if a leakage happens it can negatively affect the environment for example the brake system if a leakage happens from the system a special oil made of different chemicals will leak out thus affecting the environment since it can leave less of that oil to operate the system and maybe wild animals might consume it which will make them die also it might wear out the paint on the road if left in hot or cold temperatures. Fluid power also can be abrasive to aircraft materials making it harmful if it comes in contact with other substances or objects. Also we are using fluid power a lot since it basically is our only source out of the states of matter to operate a machine more easier, and as technology is advancing with new machines, new devices,etc.

Benefits and Costs of Brake System

A Hydraulic Brake System’s value of its work is that whenever the driver pushes down the brake pedal all 4 cylinders have the same maximized braking effort making the system work when used on the road. If the system breaks down reconstruction is simple to make it work the same again, when driving even if you use the brake system a lot there is a very low rate of it wearing out. When on the road the system has a high mechanical advantage. It also is hydraulic when the brake pedal is pushed it pushes a fluid through a tube and pushes the brake pad to stop the rotor since the fluid has been pressurized .The cost of a Hydraulic Brake System on environment is when the cylinder makes contact with a brake pad made of leather and metal it leaves dust, a type of dust called asbestos which is a very dangerous dust to breathe in because it can give you cancer and this affects pedestrians impacting their health and the more the brake pad is used is more thinner it gets and all that thickness has been polluted in the air or on the ground. Brake Systems also release carbon dioxide which pollutes the air and environment ,what happens to the wheel the more the system is used the more the tires burn leaving burned pieces behind. Leakages can occur which could impact the system and environment the liquid which leaks is a special oil which is made up of different chemicals and this can harm the environment like the road and also might be consumed by animals which can kill them and it impacts the vehicle because that liquid is stored up in a tube that is double the height of a bottle of acrylic paint so if the liquid leaks if a large amount is gone that could affect the functioning of the vehicle. Whenever the brake is used to stop when the engine starts running again to be locomotive it takes more power since it was just slowed down so it takes more power to get it back to its previous speed level. Another cost is it affects those who regularly drive long distances a repair is needed if you are going to use the vehicle again which affects the person financially.
