Brake Caliper Piston Area Calculations

Use this calculation to determine brake caliper piston area, which is used in other calculations. Works on calipers with one, two, four, or six pistons. Brake piston area is used in the brakes calculation.

Enter brake piston diameter. Calculate piston area for individual brake pistons and total piston area for each brake caliper. Separate calculations are provided for front and rear calipers.
