Hydraulic Pneumatic Cylinder Force

 
The following equations will determine the applicable force and presuures of a hydraulic or pneumatic cylinder. All units are given in inches.
 
Force and Pressure to extend cylinder
 
 
 
Where:
 
FR = Force Extend (Lbs)
PR = Applied Pressure (psi)
D1 = Diameter (inches)
 
Force and Pressure to retract cylinder
 
 
 
Open Calculator :
 
 
FL = Force Extend (Lbs)
PL = Applied Pressure (psi)
D1 = Diameter (inches)
D2 = Diameter (inches)

You should also show the hydraulic piston force calculation of: R^2 x pi x pressure, which is the one I use, and most others.
