How much force would a 2.5 inch diameter 4 lb. piston traveling 6 inches pressurized by 150 psi. be hitting a stop? I know the force of a 2.5 inch piston with 150 psi is 736 lbs. I do not know how to calculate the speed & mass traveling 6 inches or 12 inches.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks

Jay
