## Suction Cup Size Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Suction Cup Size.

A = F / P

Variables:

- A is the Suction Cup Size (m^2)
- F is the total force needed (N)
- P is the total pressure outside the cup (Pa)

To calculate the suction cup size, divide the total force needed by the total pressure outside the cup/

## How to Calculate Suction Cup Size?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Suction Cup Size.

- First, determine the total force needed (N).
- Next, determine the total pressure outside the cup (Pa).
- Next, gather the formula from above = A = F / P.
- Finally, calculate the Suction Cup Size.
- 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.

total force needed (N) = 300

total pressure outside the cup (Pa) = 100,000

A = F / P** **= ?
