The image above represents compression ratio. To calculate compression ratio, two essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **Total Cylinder Volume (V _{1})Â **andÂ

**Clearance Volume (V**

_{2}).The formula for calculating compression ratio:

CR =Â ^{V1}Â /Â _{V2}

Where:

CR = Compression Ratio

V_{1}Â = Total Cylinder Volume

V_{2}Â = 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;

V_{1} = Total Cylinder Volume = 77

V_{2} = Clearance Volume = 11

CR =Â ^{V1}Â /Â _{V2}

Si, CR = ^{77}Â /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**

V_{1} = CR x V_{2}

Where;

V_{1}Â = Total Cylinder Volume

CR = Compression Ratio

V_{2}Â = 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

V_{2} = Clearance Volume = 4

V_{1} = CR x V_{2}

So, V_{1} = 10 x 4

V_{1} = 40

Therefore, theÂ **total cylinder volumeÂ **isÂ **40**

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

V_{2} = ^{V1} / _{CR}

Where;

V_{2}Â = Clearance Volume

CR = Compression Ratio

V_{1} = 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

V_{1} = Total Cylinder Volume = 36

V_{2} = ^{V1} / _{CR}

That is, V_{2} = ^{36} / _{9}

V_{2} = 4

Therefore, theÂ **clearance volumeÂ **isÂ **4.**
