State the advantages and disadvantages of using water as a fluid medium in the hydraulic circuit.

 Advantage: Water has low viscosity so it flows easily. This results in lesser loss of pressure in the pipes and fittings of hydraulic system.

Disadvantages: The biggest disadvantage is that water does not have any lubricating property. Also its physical characteristics get changed with the variation in temperature i.e. It gets freeze in cold weather and gets evaporated in hot conditions.
