The **Stress (Tangential) in Cylinder** calculator computes ..... .

**INSTRUCTIONS**: Choose units and enter the following:

**(**Pressure Inside Closed Cylinder**P**)**(**Outer Radius of Cylinder**r**)_{o}**(**Inner Radius of Cylinder**r**)_{i}

**Stress (Tangential) in Cylinder (σ): **The results are returns in units of newtons per meter square (N/m^{2}). However, these can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.

The Tangential Stress in a Cylinder calculator computes the tangential stress on the inner wall of a closed cylindrical pressure vessel.^{1} The tangential stress is also sometimes called the "hoop stress" as it is the surface wall stress all the way around the cylinder. The formula for the Tangential Stress in a Cylinder is:

`sigma_"t_int" = P*(r_o^2 + r_i^2) / (r_o^2 - r_i^2)`

where:

- σ = Tangential Stress in a Cylinder
**P**= the pressure inside the closed cylinder- r
_{o} - r
_{i}= inner radius of the cylinder

Stress (Tangetial) out Cylinder

**Lateral Surface Area (sides) of a Cylinder**based on height and radius.**Total Surface Area of a Cylinder**including the sides, top and bottom.**Volume of a Cylinder**based on cylinder height and radius**Cylinder Volume from Height and Circumference****Height of a Cylinder**based on the volume and radius.**Radius of a Cylinder**based on the volume and height.**Mass or Weight of a Cylinder**based on the volume and mean density of the cylinder.**Density of a Cylinder**.**Lateral Surface Area of a Slanted Cylinder**.**Volume of a Slanted Cylinder**.**Weight or Mass of a Slanted Cylinder**.- Moment of Inertia of a cylinder shaped object based around the central axis
