Torque

8 May

Here are some numbers concerning torsion springs characteristic; turn a spring ten degrees and the torque will provide 1 Nmm. Turn the spring twenty degrees and it will provide a torque of 2 Nmm. If you don’t know what “torque” means it’s equal force x leg length; M=F x A. The counter force will decrease the closer to the end the leg the load is applied.
