*For the equations behind this calculator, see:
"Geometric Boundaries"
Interpretation and Application of
Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing*

This calculator will determine the unknown variable of a floating fastener design condition using ASME Y14.5 - 2009 and ISO 1101 and derivative GD&T standards.

Negative Tolerance Numbers Indicate an Interference Condition

This calculator will calculate the unknown for the given conditions.

Two__ (2) inputs are required,__& See the application illustration at bottom of page.

The following are definitions for the elements:

* Fastener (Shaft) Diameter* - This is the maximum size (MMC) of the bolt, shaft or other feature of size.

* Hole Diameter* - This is the smallest hole (MMC) for the given feature of size.

* TOL = **Hole Tolerance*, This is the hole positional tolerance applied to all related hole features.

Applies to both plates #1 and #2.
