Nm to Kg
Name: mike Status: N/A Age: 40s Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: 1999
in my work i have gear boxes specified in Nm. How do i work out what weight they will lift in kgs.
1 N is the force required to lift approximately 0.1 kg of mass against earth's gravity. 1 Nm of torque can lift this weight attached to a chain wrapped around a gear whose radius is 1 meter.
