Foot pounds as in a bullet is foot-pound force (dot product).Foot pounds as in a bullet or car engine is foot-pound force (dot product). Weight is the pound mass. The torque of a torque wrench is Foot-pound mass (cross product).
Also, work = force x distance (f and d parallel), so f = w/d (work per unit displacement).Thus, torque is the angular analog to linear force. It is not a description of an action, as work is.
True. See previous post. I was emphasizing, poorly as it turns out, the total work done in the example, not creating units for torque. I didn't want to introduce the concept of arc length.Unless I'm missing something, not work done per revolution, but work done per radian of revolution.
