Enter the torque (N-m), the radius (m), and the area (m^2) into the calculator to determine the Pressure From Torque. 

Pressure From Torque Formula

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

P = T/r/A

  • Where P is the Pressure From Torque (Pa)
  • T is the torque (N-m) 
  • r is the radius (m) 
  • A is the area (m^2) 

How to Calculate Pressure From Torque?

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

Example Problem #1

  1. First, determine the torque (N-m). In this example, the torque (N-m) is given as 500 .
  2. Next, determine the radius (m). For this problem, the radius (m) is given as  3 .
  3. Next, determine the area (m^2). In this case, the area (m^2) is found to be 5.
  4. Finally, calculate the Pressure From Torque using the formula above: 

P = T/r/A

Inserting the values from above and solving yields: 

P =500/3/5 = 33.33 (Pa)


Example Problem #2

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

torque (N-m) = 600

radius (m) = 7

area (m^2) = 8

Enter these given values yields: 

P = 600/7/8 = 10.71 (Pa)
