Rotational Force formula

\(\large{ \tau = I \; \alpha  }\)
Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ \tau }\)  (Greek symbol tau) = rotational force \(\large{lbf - ft}\) \(\large{N-m}\)
\(\large{ \alpha }\)  (Greek symbol alpha) = angular acceleration \(\large{\frac{deg}{sec^2}}\) \(\large{\frac{rad}{s^2}}\)
\(\large{ I  }\) = moment of inertia \(\large{in^4}\) \(\large{mm^4}\)
