Torque/Interchangeability

Torque and Screw Interchangeability Chart (pdf)

Torque Calculation:

Torque is defined as the measure of the force applied to produce rotational motion (usually measured in foot-pounds). Torque is determined by multiplying the applied force by the distance from the pivot point to the point where the force is applied.

  • In the English system, torque is measured in “foot-pounds” or “inch-pounds”.
  • In the Metric system, torque is measured in “Newton-meters”.
  • 8.851 inch-pounds = 1 Newton-meter
  • 1 foot-pound = 12 inch-pounds
  • 16 ounce-inches = 1 inch-pound
  • 1 Newton = 1 kilogram-meter per second squared
  • Torque = Force x Moment Arm
