Here's a diagram showing how to calculate view camera depth of field. By
the way, an easy way to calculate hyperfocal distance is to multiply the
diameter of your lens opening by 1500. (That's if you calculated the maximum
allowable circle of confusion diameter by dividing the focal length of the
lens by 1500. It works for other numbers besides 1500, too.)

Larry Fratkin has provided an on-line calculator for view camera depth of field at this link. To understand his terminology the following diagram might prove useful:
