Hydraulic Pressure Calculator
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How do you calculate hydraulic pressure?
- To calculate hydraulic pressure use the formula p = F/A, where F is the force, and A is the surface area.
What is the unit of hydraulic pressure?
- Hydraulic pressure is measured in pascal (Pa) units, which are equal to N/m² or kg/(m*s²).
What happens if hydraulic pressure is too high?
- If the hydraulic pressure is too high, the system will use excessive input energy resulting in the fluid overheating. In addition, overpressurization can cause mechanical damage and valve plate separation.
What is meant by hydraulic pressure?
- Hydraulic pressure is the pressure exerted by a fluid on a surface or structure with which it has contact.
What is the difference between hydraulic and hydrostatic pressure?
- The difference between hydrostatic pressure and hydraulic pressure is that while hydrostatic pressure is the pressure of a 'standing liquid' due to the force of gravity, hydraulic pressure is the pressure in a fluid system that is being acted on by a compressor or pump (an exterior force).
