I was wondering if anyone could tell me or show me how to calculate the pressure inside the cumbustion chamber of a Briggs and Stratton 5hp engine. This calculation is done at 3800 rpm. Thanks

Mean Effective Pressure is calculated by:

MEP = 1000 * (P * Nr) / (V * N)

Where MEP is in kPa, P is power in kW, Nr is the number of crank revolutions per power stroke, V the displaced volume per cylinder, and N the number of cylinders.

Note that the peak cylinder pressure will be much higher than this, but the calculation of this is far more involved.
