Acrylic thickness for aquarium calculator,Leyu acrylic aquarium factory teaches you how to calculate.
The thickness of the acrylic aquarium cylinder is determined by the pressure received by the acrylic sheet.
To calculate the thickness of acrylic aquarium, you need to consider the water pressure exerted on the walls of the tank. The thickness required depends on factors such as the dimensions of the tank and the depth of the water. Here's a general guideline for calculating the thickness of acrylic aquarium:
Determine the maximum water level: Decide on the desired water level in the aquarium. This will help determine the height or depth of the water column.
Calculate the hydrostatic pressure: Hydrostatic pressure increases with the depth of the water. The formula to calculate hydrostatic pressure is P = ρgh, where P is the pressure, ρ is the density of water (approximately 1000 kg/m³), g is the acceleration due to gravity (approximately 9.8 m/s²), and h is the height or depth of the water column.
Determine the maximum pressure on the walls: The maximum pressure exerted on the walls of the aquarium occurs at the bottom. This pressure is equal to the hydrostatic pressure calculated in the previous step.
