## Spiral Torsion Spring Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the torque provided by a spiral spring.

M = [ pi * E * b * t^3 * theta ] / [ 6 * L ]

- Where E is the modulus of elasticity
- b is the material width
- t is the material thickness
- theta is the angle of deflection
- L is the length

## Spiral Torsion Definition

Spiral torsion is the measure of torque of the moment about an axis caused by a helical spring and twisting force.
