# How to Calculate and Solve for Compression Ratio | Irrigation Water Requirement

The image above represents compression ratio. To calculate compression ratio, two essential parameters are needed and these parameters are Total Cylinder Volume (V1)Â andÂ Clearance Volume (V2).

The formula for calculating compression ratio:

CR =Â V1Â /Â V2

Where:

CR = Compression Ratio
V1Â = Total Cylinder Volume
V2Â = Clearance Volume

Let’s solve an example;
Given that the total cylinder volume is 77 and the clearance volume is 11, find the Compression ratio.

This implies that;

V1 = Total Cylinder Volume = 77
V2 = Clearance Volume = 11

CR =Â V1Â /Â V2
Si, CR = 77Â /Â 11
CR = 7

Therefore, theÂ compression ratioÂ isÂ 7.

### Calculating for the Total Cylinder Volume when the Compression Ratio and the Clearance Volume are Given

V1 = CR x V2

Where;

V1Â = Total Cylinder Volume
CR = Compression Ratio
V2Â = Clearance Volume

Let’s solve an example;
Find the total cylinder volume when the compression ratio is 10 and the clearance volume is 4.

This implies that;

CR = Compression Ratio = 10
V2 = Clearance Volume = 4

V1 = CR x V2
So, V1 = 10 x 4
V1 = 40

Therefore, theÂ total cylinder volumeÂ isÂ 40

### Calculating for the Clearance Volume when the Compression Ratio and the Total Cylinder Volume are Given

V2 = V1 / CR

Where;

V2Â = Clearance Volume
CR = Compression Ratio
V1 = Total Cylinder Volume

Let’s solve an example;
Find the clearance volume when the compression ratio is 36, and the total cylinder volume is 9.

This implies that;

CR = Compression Ratio = 9
V1 = Total Cylinder Volume = 36

V2 = V1 / CR
That is, V2 = 36 / 9
V2 = 4

Therefore, theÂ clearance volumeÂ isÂ 4.
