The Air Compression Ratio Calculator is designed to help you determine the compression ratio of an air compressor. This ratio is essential in understanding how effectively an air compressor reduces volume and compresses air. Knowing the compression ratio can aid in optimizing performance and ensuring that your air compression systems meet the required specifications.

**Formula**

To calculate the air compression ratio, use the following formula:

**CR = V1 / V2**

Where:

**CR**is the compression ratio.**V1**is the initial volume of the air before compression.**V2**is the volume of the air after compression.

**How to Use**

**Volume 1 (V1):**Enter the initial volume of the air before compression in cubic meters.**Volume 2 (V2):**Enter the volume of the air after compression in cubic meters.- Click the “Calculate” button to determine the compression ratio.
- The result will be displayed in the output field.

**Example**

If you have an initial air volume of 10 cubic meters (V1) and after compression, the volume is 2 cubic meters (V2), you would:

- Enter “10” for Volume 1.
- Enter “2” for Volume 2.
- Click “Calculate”.

The calculator will show the compression ratio as 5.00.

**FAQs**
