How does hydraulic JCB (Joseph Cyril Bamford) work?*

Hydraulic systems, like pneumatic systems, are based on Pascal’s law which states that any pressure applied to a fluid inside a closed system will transmit that pressure equally everywhere and in all directions .

A hydraulic system uses an in-compressible liquid as its fluid, rather than a compressible gas.

Hydraulic systems work by using pressurized fluid to power an engine. These hydraulic presses put pressure on a small amount of fluid in order to generate a large amount of power. Here’s a basic idea of a hydraulic system: water in a contained system has pressure put on it from one side.

Hydraulics operate the control surfaces on any large airplane. You see hydraulics at car service centers lifting the cars so that mechanics can work underneath them, and many elevators are hydraulically operated using the same technique. Even the brakes in your car use hydraulics!

Hydraulic systems are made up of numerous parts:

The reservoir holds hydraulic fluid. The hydraulic pump moves the liquid through the system and converts mechanical energy and motion into hydraulic fluid power. The electric motor powers the hydraulic pump. The valves control the flow of the liquid and relieve excessive pressure from the system if needed.

The hydraulic cylinder converts the hydraulic energy back into mechanical energy.

Mother Teresa*
Mary Teresa Bojaxhiu (born Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu, 26 August 1910 – 5 , September 1997), commonly known as Mother Teresa and honoured in the Roman Catholic Church as Saint Teresa of Calcutta, was an Albanian-Indian Roman Catholic nun and missionary.

After living in Skopje for eighteen years, she moved to Ireland and then to India, where she lived for most of her life.

Why always Shiva linga is placed to wards North direction. It’s water flow indicates North side.

According to the Linga Purana, the lingam is a complete symbolic representation of the formless Universe Bearer – the oval-shaped stone is the symbol of the Universe, and the bottom base represents the Supreme Power that holds the entire Universe in it.

According to Agama Shastra, The base of the shiva linga should be either north or East direction. River ganga flow form north to south. As the Shiva linga is facing east direction. The water is flowing towards north direction , hence the water flowing side is kept facing the north. Ganga flows from Himalayas (North) and moves towards the south. So Shiva Linga is placed in that manner facing towards East.

Women, especially unmarried women are prohibited from touching or even doing the Shiva Linga puja. But there’s a reason to it. A shivling symbolizes the union of mind and soul. … Since the lingum represents the male reproductive organ, unmarried women are not allowed to either touch it, worship it, or offer water.
