# Fluid Power-Pneumatics and Hydraulics

* Hydraulics *is defined as the branch of science and technology concerned with the conveyance of liquids to produce mechanical force or control another system and *Pneumatics *is defined as the branch of physics or technology concerned with the mechanical properties of gases.

The key here is that they both allow us to do **work**! Without these systems, how would you lift a car to change the oil? Clamp a part in a CNC mill? Absorb the shock from bumps in the road? Follow along with us in this project that Jim has designed to introduce students to the basics of *fluid power*.
