cjf711 Posted January 28 Share Posted January 28 how much Torque is foot pounds (distance vector x mass vector). how much Work is pound feet (Force x distance) I just googled this as i have never really used pound feet, anything for calculation for design is foot pounds from what ive done. But i almost always am using torques not calculating "work" You would torque a bolt to foot pounds, but an engine providing work would be stated in pound feet. I learned something today! 2 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
