Torsional Flexibility FORMULA

\(\large{ f = \frac{ l }{ G \; J } }\)
Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ f }\) = torsional flexibility  \(\large{\frac{lbf-ft}{deg}}\) \(\large{\frac{N-m}{rad}}\)
\(\large{ l }\) = length \(\large{in}\) \(\large{mm}\)
\(\large{ G }\) = shear modulus \(\large{\frac{lbf}{in^2}}\) \(\large{Pa}\)
\(\large{ J }\) = torsion constant (polar momentum of inertia) \(\large{in^4}\) \(\large{mm^4}\)
