Enter the values of internal or external pressure, P_{(Pa)} and d_{(m)} is the diameter of the cylinder to determine the value of axial Force, AF_{(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*d^{2}_{(m)} / 4 where d_{(m)} is the diameter of the cylinder in metres.

Axial Force, AF_{(N)} = P_{(Pa)} * 0.785 * d^{2}_{(m)}

AF_{(N)} = axial force in Newton, N.

P_{(Pa)} = external or internal pressure in Pascals, Pa.

d^{2}_{(m)} = diameter of cylinder in metres, m.

- 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, d^{2}_{(m)} = 0.2m.

Axial Force, AF_{(N)} = P_{(Pa)} * 0.785 * d^{2}_{(m)}

AF_{(N)} = 300,000 * 0.785 * 0.2^{2}

AF_{(N)} = 9420N.

- 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, d^{2}_{(m)} = 0.1m.

Axial Force, AF_{(N)} = P_{(Pa)} * 0.785 * d^{2}_{(m)}

P_{(Pa)} = AF_{(N)} / 0.785 * d^{2}_{(m)}

P_{(Pa)} = 10000/ 0.785 * 0.1^{2}

P_{(Pa)} = 1,273,239.54Pa.
