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) or when shock loaded.

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 F(t) during t.
