Hydraulic cylinder force calculator

The cylinder force F is dependent on the operating pressure p and the effective area A.

F = p×A

The force produced on the opposite of rod side

The calculated equation:

F = p×πD2/4

Pressure p:
Piston diameter D:

The force produced on the rod side

Equation for calculating the force of the double action hydraulic cylinder in the reverse motion:

F = p×π(D2-d2)/4
