Answer:The magnitude of force the fluid leaves the needle is 3.75 x 10⁻³ N

Explanation:Given;

applied force to the plunger, F = 6 N

radius of the plunger, r = 0.40 cm = 4 x 10⁻³ m

radius of the needle, r = 0.010 cm = 1 x 10⁻⁴ m

Pressure of the fluid is given as;

P = F / A

where;

A is area, = πr²

if pressure of the fluid is constant, the force applied to the plunger and force the fluid leaves the needle is given as;

Therefore, the magnitude of force the fluid leaves the needle is 3.75 x 10⁻³ N
