# Brake Caliper Clamping Force Calculator, Formula, Brake Caliper Clamping Force Calculation

## Brake Caliper Clamping Force Calculator:

Enter the values of caliper pressure CP(psi) & caliper cantact area CA(inches2)  to determine the value of brake caliper clamping force BCF(lbf) .

 Enter Caliper Pressure: psi Enter Caliper Cantact Area: inches2 Result – Brake Caliper Clamping Force: lbf

## Brake Caliper Clamping Force Formula:

The brake caliper clamping force BCF(lbf) in lbf is equal to the caliper pressure CP(psi) in psi into multiply the caliper cantact area CA(inches2) in inches square.

The equation of brake caliper clamping force can writtern as,

BCF(lbf) = CP(psi) * CA(inches2)

Here,

BCF(lbf) = brake caliper clamping force in lbf

CP(psi) = caliper pressure in psi

CA(inches2) = caliper cantact area in inches square

### Brake Caliper Clamping Force Calculation:

1)To find the brake caliper clamping force and the caliper pressure 400psi and the caliper cantact area 10inches2.

BCF = CP * CA

BCF = 400 * 10

BCF = 4000lbf.

2)To find caliper cantact area and the brake caliper clamping force 4000lbf and the caliper pressure 400psi.
