The image above represents plastic pressure.

To compute for plastic pressure, two essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **hydraulic pressure (P _{H})** and

**intensification ratio (I**

_{r}).The formula for calculating plastic pressure:

P_{p} = P_{H} x I_{r}

Where;

P_{p} = Plastic Pressure

P_{H} = Hydraulic Pressure

I_{r} = Intensification Ratio

Let’s solve an example;

Find the plastic pressure when the hydraulic pressure is 20 and the intensification ratio is 44.

This implies that;

P_{H} = Hydraulic Pressure = 20

I_{r} = Intensification Ratio = 44

P_{p} = P_{H} x I_{r}

P_{p} = 20 x 44

P_{p} = 880

Therefore, the **plastic pressure **is **880.**

**Calculating the Hydraulic Pressure when the Plastic Pressure and the Intensification Ratio is Given.**

P_{H} = ^{Pp} / _{Ir}

Where;

P_{H} = Hydraulic Pressure

P_{p} = Plastic Pressure

I_{r} = Intensification Ratio

Let’s solve an example;

Find the hydraulic pressure when the plastic pressure is 24 and the intensification ratio is 10.

This implies that;

P_{p} = Plastic Pressure = 24

I_{r} = Intensification Ratio = 10

P_{H} = ^{Pp} / _{Ir}

P_{H} = ^{24} / _{10}

P_{H} = 2.4

Therefore, the **hydraulic pressure **is **2.4.**

**Calculating the Intensification Ratio when the Plastic Pressure and the Hydraulic Pressure is Given.**

I_{r} = ^{Pp} / _{PH}

Where;

I_{r} = Intensification Ratio

P_{p} = Plastic Pressure

P_{H} = Hydraulic Pressure

Let’s solve an example;

Find the intensification ratio when the plastic pressure is 30 and the hydraulic pressure is 15.

This implies that;

P_{p} = Plastic Pressure = 30

P_{H} = Hydraulic Pressure = 15

I_{r} = ^{Pp} / _{PH}

I_{r} = ^{30} / _{15}

I_{r} = 2

Therefore, the **intensification ratio **is **2.**
