## User Guide

This tool will calculate the theoretical bore diameter of a piston cylinder assembly by entering values for the piston force and the pressure within the cylinder.

### Formula

The formula used by this calculator to determine the piston cylinder bore diameter from force and pressure is:

r = ø / 2

A = π · r^{2} = π · (ø / 2)^{2}

A = π · ø^{2} / 4

ø = √ (4 · A / π)

P = F / A

A = F / P

ø = √ (4 · F / (π · P))

#### Symbols

- ø = Circle diameter
- F = Force
- P = Pressure
- π = Pi = 3.14159…
- r = Circle radius
- A = Circle area

### Piston Force

Enter the reading in any units for the force on the piston.

### Cylinder Pressure

Enter a value in any units for the pressure within the cylinder

### Piston / Cylinder Bore Diameter

This is the theoretical bore diameter of the piston cylinder assembly that is present or would be required for the combination of force and pressure values entered.
