If you're discussing torque, whether it's for fasteners or an engine's power, remember that the pound-foot is the right unit of measurement, and the next time the issue arises, you can either say, because the SAE says so, or bring up this article, melt a few brains, and settle it conclusively.

However, if I raise the velocity by 10% while keeping the pellet mass constant, the kinetic energy rises to 76.5 foot-pounds. This is a 21% gain. When you think about it, it makes sense since the velocity measurement is squared in the calculation, thus it has a far greater influence on the output. While foot-pounds are the de facto measurement of an airgun and its pellet power factor, they do not provide a comprehensive picture. To really grasp how much force we're talking about, you need include momentum as well. Momentum may be defined as the ability of one item to move another. Yes, I'm misrepresenting Newtonian physics, but we're only doing basic demonstrations here.

The pound-foot (also and historically known as the pound-force foot) is a classic English torque unit. Torque is the propensity of a force to cause a spin. It is the angular counterpart of linear force. Torque is calculated by multiplying the force by the distance between the center of rotation and the place where the force is delivered. For example, a one-pound force applied to a wrench with an effective length of one foot produces one pound-foot of torque on the fastener. The Newton meter is the SI or international equivalent of the pound-foot (Nm). Similarly, if a brake and lever are attached to an engine's output shaft and the measured resistance force is 100 pounds and the lever is one foot long, 100 pound-feet of torque is indicated. That is, in a nutshell, how engine torque is measured. This is the torque figure that you will see cited in automotive publications and sales brochures.

### Foot Pounds

Units of Energy Energy is often described as the ability to accomplish labor or generate heat. As a result of this definition, the SI unit for energy is the same as the unit of work, the joule (J). The Joule unit of energy is named after James Prescott Joule and his work on the mechanical equivalent of heat. In simpler words, 1 joule is equivalent to:

Of course, the downward force produced by a one-pound mass varies depending on location; it is less on Mt. Everest than on the seashore, and much less on the Moon. The pound-force was created to remove such confusion while also creating a unit that is clearly a unit of force. Another similar measure, the poundal, was established to be clearly a unit of force, the force required to accelerate 1 pound at a specific pace. The foot poundal is another archaic unit of energy derived from this measure of force. Fortunately, no one has ever utilized the poundal foot as a torque unit.

If you're discussing torque, whether it's for fasteners or an engine's power, remember that the pound-foot is the right unit of measurement, and the next time the issue arises, you can either say, because the SAE says so, or bring up this article, melt a few brains, and settle it conclusively.

Determine the velocity of an 8-grain pellet producing 11.37 foot-pounds of energy. That is 11.37 multiplied by 450240 and divided by 8. Then, on your calculator, press the square-root key. My calculator yields 799.93974, which is quite near to 800. Remember that we rounded down the energy value, which explains the minor gap between our solution and 800.
