You must've found the same websites as me when I was looking for something similar last month smile.gif

I assume that lbft/sec etc is a derived measurement which is useful for converting to other units, and I'm pretty sure I've heard lbft/sec quoted before, although I can't remember in what context.

IIRC, 1Nm of torque indicates the amount of turning effort gained when a weight of 1Newton is placed on a (weightless) bar 1meter from the centre of rotation. Thus, you could possibly say that 1Nm/sec is continuous application of 1Nm of torque for a second (you are turning something). Not sure how useful that is though.

Of course, this could all be BS - maybe a mech eng can come and enlighten us smile.gif
