The formula for calculating hydraulic force is:

\[Force (lbf) = Area (sq in) \times Pressure (psi)\]Where:

- Force: The hydraulic force exerted (in pounds-force, lbf)
- Area: The surface area over which the pressure is applied (in square inches)
- Pressure: The fluid pressure (in pounds per square inch, psi)

- Identify the area over which the pressure is applied
- Determine the fluid pressure
- Multiply the area by the pressure to get the force

Let's calculate the hydraulic force for an area of 10 square inches with a pressure of 100 psi:

- Area = 10 sq in
- Pressure = 100 psi
- Force = 10 × 100 = 1000 lbf

This visual shows the hydraulic force acting on a surface based on our example calculation.
