# Vickers Hardness Calculator

Vickers hardness test is a test used to find the hardness of materials. The unit of hardness that we get as a result of the test is called as the vickers pyramid number (HV). This is an online calculator to find the vickers hardness (HV) of any material based on the load and arithmetic mean.

The Vickers Pyramid Number is also called as diamond pyramid hardness(DPH).

### Example

#### Vickers Pyramid Number

If the load of the material is 40 and average length of diagonal is 1, then

HF = 1.854 * 40 / (1*1)

= 74.16
