Newton's Second Law for Rotation formula

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