# Hydraulic Cylinder Push Pull Force Calculator

Hydraulic cylinders are mechanical equipment to produce linear motion using the hydraulic fluid. The cylinders are capable of giving a push and pull force in millions of metric tons. Push force is given to an object in a forward motion, whereas pull force is given to an object in a backward motion. Use this online Hydraulic Cylinder Push Pull Force Calculator for estimating the push and pull force for hydraulic cylinders in any kind of mechanical operations.

#### Formula:

Push = (a x 3.1415 x b2) / 4 Pull = (a x 3.1415 x b2 - d2) / 4 Where, a = Pound per Square Inch b = Bore Of a Cylinder d = Diameter Of a Rod

#### Example

A Hydraulic cylinder has its Pound Per Square Inch of 12 with cylinder bore as 25 cm and rod diameter as 8 cm

Push Force = (12 x 3.1415 x 252) / 4
=0.0091 g
Pull Force = (12 x 3.1415 x 252 - 82) / 4
=-5.9e-7 g

Push and pull forces in hydraulic cylinder are applied on the object to give friction.
