Hadron cross-section measurement is crucial to understand the final-state interactions which accounts for a large source of systematic uncertainty in neutrino oscillation experiments. ProtoDUNE-SP with its charged particle beam data can provide such experimental constraints. This work shows the pion-argon inclusive cross-section measurement using ProtoDUNE-SP Run 1 1 GeV/c beam data. We further develop the slicing method proposed by the LArIAT collaboration and apply it to large scale LArTPC like ProtoDUNE-SP. The cross-sections of pion kinetic energy ranging from 350 MeV to 950 MeV are measured.
