Enter the compressive force (N) and the total area (m^2) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Compressive Strength.

## Compressive Strength Formula

CS = CF / A

Variables:

• CS is the Compressive Strength (N/m^2)
• CF is the compressive force (N)
• A is the total area (m^2)

To calculate Compressive Strength, divide the compressive force by the total area.

## How to Calculate Compressive Strength?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Compressive Strength.

1. First, determine the compressive force (N).
2. Next, determine the total area (m^2).
3. Next, gather the formula from above = CS = CF / A.
4. Finally, calculate the Compressive Strength.
5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem :

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

compressive force (N) = 1000

total area (m^2) = 3
