Note the reading on Dynamometer panel when torque wrench snaps. Measure the distance from the center of socket and pull from wrench handle as shown in picture below. 3) Torque wrench setting(kgf m) =Load (kgf) X D (m) 4) Prepare Calibration Certificate for the range of the torque in few steps and include the Calculated Torque (T) for the corresponding Force (F) and moment arm (D) in tabular form.

Torque is determined by multiplying the applied force by the distance from the pivot point to the point where the force is applied. Torque = Force x Moment Arm 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 Conversion Formulas: Multiply By To obtain foot-pounds 1.3558 Newton-meters foot-pounds 0.1383 kilogram-meters foot-pounds 12.0 inch-pounds inch-pounds 0.0115 kilogram-meters inch-pounds 0.1130 Newton-meters inch-pounds 0.0833 foot-pounds kilogram-meters 7.233 foot-pounds kilogram-meters 86.7964 inch-pounds kilogram-meters 9.8067 Newton-meters Newton-meters 0.7376 foot-pounds Newton-meters 8.8508 inch-pounds Newton-meters 0.1020 kilogram-meters Photographic reference. 8eam wlLh Lrack way Lo ad[usL u of Lorque wrench of varlable lengLh 8ase plaLe Lo ad[usL Lhe angular poslLlon of Lhe Lorque spanner, so LhaL exacL u can be calculaLed aL Lhe Lorque polnL. </p>
