## Force during retraction Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
force = Pressure*(Area of piston-Area of piston rod)
F = P*(Ap-Ar)
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Pressure - The pressure is defined as the physical force exerted on an object. It is symbolized by P. (Measured in Pascal)
Area of piston - Area of piston is the value of area of the piston in a piston pump (Measured in Square Meter)
Area of piston rod - Area of piston rod is the value of the area of the rod connected to the piston (Measured in Square Meter)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Pressure: 800 Pascal --> 800 Pascal No Conversion Required
Area of piston: 0.1 Square Meter --> 0.1 Square Meter No Conversion Required
Area of piston rod: 0.5 Square Meter --> 0.5 Square Meter No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
F = P*(Ap-Ar) --> 800*(0.1-0.5)
Evaluating ... ...
F = -320
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
-320 Newton --> No Conversion Required
-320 Newton <-- Force

### FAQ

What is Force during retraction?
The Force during retraction formula is defined as the product of pressure and difference between area of piston and piston rod and is represented as F = P*(Ap-Ar) or force = Pressure*(Area of piston-Area of piston rod). The pressure is defined as the physical force exerted on an object. It is symbolized by P, Area of piston is the value of area of the piston in a piston pump and Area of piston rod is the value of the area of the rod connected to the piston.
How to calculate Force during retraction?
The Force during retraction formula is defined as the product of pressure and difference between area of piston and piston rod is calculated using force = Pressure*(Area of piston-Area of piston rod). To calculate Force during retraction, you need Pressure (P), Area of piston (Ap) and Area of piston rod (Ar). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Pressure, Area of piston and Area of piston rod and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
