Spring Rate & Pressure at Compressed Length

This is really quite simple. All you need to do is change a value in any of the boxes in the upper section and the boxes in the lower section will automatically display the calculated values when you click 'Calculate'.

Formula; Spring Rate =:
Modulus Of Spring Steel X Wire Diameter4
8 X Number Of Active Coils X Mean Coil Diameter3
Spring Material Option and Output Type
Number of Active Coils:
Wire Diameter:
Outside Diameter of Spring:
Free Length:
Compressed Length:
Please select the output unit required for Spring Rate:
