__Clamping Force Formula:__

The clamping force calculator is designed to determine the force exerted by a clamp, essential in various applications such as machining, woodworking, and assembly processes to hold objects securely in place.

Clamping Force, F_{(N)} in Newtons is calculated by dividing the torque applied, T_{(N.m)} in Newton-meters, by the product of the friction coefficient, K and the diameter of the clamping mechanism, D_{(m)} in meters.

Clamping Force, F_{(N)} = T_{(N.m)} / K * D_{(m)}

F_{(N)} = clamping force in Newtons, N.

T_{(N.m)} = torque applied in Newton metre, N.m.

K = friction coefficient.

D_{(m) }= diameter of clamping mechanism in metres, m.

__Clamping Force Calculation:__

#### 1. Calculate the clamping force generated by applying a torque of 10 N.m with a friction coefficient of 0.2 on a bolt with a diameter of 0.01 m.

#### Given: T_{(N.m)} = 10N.m, K = 0.2, D_{(m) }= 0.01m.

Clamping Force, F_{(N)} = T_{(N.m)} / K * D_{(m)}

F_{(N)} = 10 / 0.2 * 0.01

F_{(N)} = 5000N.

2. Calculate the torque required to achieve a clamping force of 8000 N, using a bolt with a diameter of 0.025 m and a friction coefficient of 0.3.

Given:** **F_{(N)} = 8000N, K = 0.3, D_{(m) }= 0.025m.

Clamping Force, F_{(N)} = T_{(N.m)} / K * D_{(m)}

T_{(N.m)} = F_{(N)} * K * D_{(m)}

T_{(N.m)} = 8000 * 0.3 * 0.025

T_{(N.m)} = 6N.m.
