 Enter External or Internal Pressure: Pa Enter Diameter of Cylinder: m Result – Axial Force: N

## Axial Force Formula:

Axial force refers to the amount of force acting along the axis of an object, typically a column or shaft, which can cause it to compress, tension, or both.

Axial Force, AF(N) in Newtons is calculated by multiplying the internal or external pressure, P(Pa) in Pascals by the cross-sectional area of the cylinder, which is derived from the formula for the area of a circle pi*d2(m) / 4 where d(m) is the diameter of the cylinder in metres.

Axial Force, AF(N) = P(Pa) * 0.785 * d2(m)

AF(N) = axial force in Newton, N.

P(Pa) = external or internal pressure in Pascals, Pa.

d2(m) = diameter of cylinder in metres, m.

### Axial Force Calculation:

1. Determine the axial force exerted on a pipe with an internal pressure of 300,000 Pa and a diameter of 0.2 metres.

Given: P(Pa) = 300,000Pa, d2(m) = 0.2m.

Axial Force, AF(N) = P(Pa) * 0.785 * d2(m)

AF(N) = 300,000 * 0.785 * 0.22

AF(N) = 9420N.

1. Suppose we know the axial force exerted on a cylinder is 10,000 N, and the diameter of the cylinder is 0.1 metres. Calculate the internal or external pressure.

Given: AF(N) = 10000N, d2(m) = 0.1m.

Axial Force, AF(N) = P(Pa) * 0.785 * d2(m)

P(Pa) = AF(N) /  0.785 * d2(m)

P(Pa) =  10000/ 0.785 * 0.12

P(Pa) =  1,273,239.54Pa.
