## Cylinder Pressure Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Cylinder Pressure.

Pc = Fc / Ac

- Where Pc is the Cylinder Pressure (N/m^2)
- Fc is the cylinder force (N)
- Ac is the cylinder area (m^2)

To calculate the cylinder pressure, divide the cylinder force by the cylinder area.

## How to Calculate Cylinder Pressure?

The following two example problems outline how to calculate the Cylinder Pressure.

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the cylinder force (N). In this example, the cylinder force (N) is given as 400.
- Next, determine the cylinder area (m^2). For this problem, the cylinder area (m^2) is given as 15.
- Finally, calculate the Cylinder Pressure using the equation above:

Pc = Fc / Ac

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation:

Pc = 400 / 15 = 26.66 (N/m^2)

**Example Problem #2: **

Using the same process as above, first define the variables required by the formula. In this case, these values are:

cylinder force (N) = 560

cylinder area (m^2) = 50

Entering these values yields:

Pc = 560 / 50 = 11.2 (N/m^2)
