Enter the pressure (psi), the area (in^2), and the radius (ft) into the calculator to determine the Torque From Pressure.

## Torque From Pressure Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Torque From Pressure.

T = P*A*r
• Where T is the Torque From Pressure (lb-ft)
• P is the pressure (psi)
• A is the area (in^2)
• r is the radius (ft)

To calculate torque from pressure, multiply the pressure by the area, then multiply by the radius.

## How to Calculate Torque From Pressure?

The following example problems outline how to calculate the Torque From Pressure.

Example Problem #1

1. First, determine the pressure (psi). In this example, the pressure (psi) is given as 100 .
2. Next, determine the area (in^2). For this problem, the area (in^2) is given as  40 .
3. Next, determine the radius (ft). In this case, the radius (ft) is found to be 10.
4. Finally, calculate the Torque From Pressure using the formula above:

T = P*A*r

Inserting the values from above and solving yields:

T = 100*40*10 = 40,000 (lb-ft)

Example Problem #2

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

pressure (psi) = 30

area (in^2) = 15

radius (ft) = 20

Enter these given values yields:

T = P*A*r = 9000 (lb-ft)
