Total area of front caliper pistons in case of FIXED MOUNT calipers.
This is the area of one piston multiplied by the number of pistons in one front caliper, multiplied by the number of calipers on the front axle.
In case of different piston diameters per caliper, calculate the area of every different piston, multiplied by the number in which every one of those different pistons occur in one caliper, add those numbers and multiply the result by the number of calipers on the front axle.
Total area of front caliper pistons in case of FLOATING calipers: Do the calculation as described above, and multiply the result by two.
The area of one piston = π • r² = ¼ • π • d² (π = 3.14)
If you prefer to have the math done by your PC, than just enter the required numbers in one of the calculators below. You can overwrite/delete the current numbers. These are just some popular values entered as an example.
REMINDER: For floating calipers, multiply the result of the calculator by 2.
