The pressure to torque conversion is a calculation used to determine the torque generated by a given pressure applied over a certain area, with the force of the pressure acting at a distance (radius) from a pivot point.

The torque, T_{(N.m)} in Newton metres is calculated by multiplying the pressure P_{(Pa)} in Pascals, the area A_{(m2)} in square metres over which the pressure is applied, and the radius r_{(m)} in metres from the center of pressure application to the pivot point.

T_{(N.m)} = P_{(Pa) }* A_{(m2) }* r_{(m)}

T_{(N.m)} = torque in Newton metres, N.m.

P_{(Pa)} = pressure in Pascal, Pa.

A_{(m2)} = area in metre per square, m^{2}.

r_{(m) }= radius in metre, m.

- Suppose a hydraulic system applies a pressure of 2,000,000 Pa (2 MPa) over a piston with an area of 0.01 m² (10 cm²), and the force acts at a distance of 0.5 metres from the pivot point. Find the torque generated.

Given: P_{(Pa) }= 2,000,000Pa, A_{(m2)} = 0.01m^{2}, r_{(m)} = 0.5m.

T_{(N.m)} = P_{(Pa) }* A_{(m2)} * r_{(m)}

T_{(N.m) }= 2,000,000 * 0.01 * 0.5

T_{(N.m) }= 10,000N.m.

- A pneumatic cylinder results a torque of 500N.m across a piston with an area of 0.005 m² (5 cm²), and the force is applied at a 0.2 metres radius from the pivot. Calculate the pressure applied.

Given: T_{(N.m) }= 500N.m, A_{(m2)} = 0.005m^{2}, r_{(m)} = 0.2m.

T_{(N.m)} = P_{(Pa) }* A_{(m2)} * r_{(m)}

P_{(Pa) }= T_{(N.m) }/ A_{(m2)} * r_{(m)}

P_{(Pa) }= 500 / 0.005 * 0.2

P_{(Pa) }= 500,000Pa
