The damping constant is the ratio between damping force and squeeze velocity. The damping constant can be used to calculate the amplitude of motion around L and the hydrostatic pressure p when the piston is subjected to sinusoidal vibrations F(t).

The normalised impuls is the averaged damping force from starting position L=0 to L. The normalised impuls can be used to calculate the displacement of the piston when subjected by shock loading Fdt.

The Reynolds number in the capillar needs to be checked while laminar viscous flow is assumed.
