Custom Bottle Water Labels - Samantha**Springs**.**Measure**the inside diameter of the coil from the side view on the inside of the cylinder as illustrated below. You can also**measure**outside diameter and subtract the wire size x 2. For example based on diameter shown below and how to calculate: 2.414 (Outside diameter) - (Wire Size) 0.207 x 2 (sides) = 2.000 (Inside Diameter)- You can calculate initial tension of an extension spring with a simple formula:
**P 1 = P – R(T)**The variables in this equation represent the following:**P 1 = Initial Tension; P = Load; R = Rate; T = Travel;**For example, where R=10 pounds per inch, P=20 pounds and T=1.5 inches, you can find the pounds of force for your spring’s initial tension. - There are two ways to

DO NOT INCLUDE THE THICKNESS OF THE SHIMS. Use a valve**spring**height micrometer. Much more precise than a ruler, the micrometer replaces the**spring**itself. - Torsion
