## Fluid Work Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Fluid Work.

**Wfluid = P*A*s**

- Where Wfluid is the Fluid Work (Joules)
- P is the fluid pressure (N/m^2)
- A is the area (m^2)
- s is the distance (m)

## How to Calculate Fluid Work?

The following example problems outline how to calculate the Fluid Work.

**Example Problem #1**

- First, determine the fluid pressure (N/m^2). In this example, the fluid pressure (N/m^2) is given as 5 .
- Next, determine the area (m^2). For this problem, the area (m^2) is given as 5 .
- Next, determine the distance (m). In this case, the distance (m) is found to be 10.
- Finally, calculate the Fluid Work using the formula above:

Wfluid = P*A*s

Inserting the values from above and solving yields:

Wfluid = 5*5*10 = 250 (Joules)

**Example Problem #2**

Using the same method as above, determine the variables required by the equation. For this example problem, these are provided as:

fluid pressure (N/m^2) = 8

area (m^2) = 8

distance (m) = 20

Enter these given values yields:

Wfluid = 8*8*20 = 1280** **(Joules)
