Enter the winding torque (in-lbf) and the winding radius (in) into the Winding Tension Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Winding Tension.

## Winding Tension Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Winding Tension.

WT = T / WR

Variables:

- WT is the Winding Tension (lbf)
- T is the winding torque (in-lbf)
- WR is the winding radius (in)

To calculate a winding tension, divide the winding torque by the winding radius.

## How to Calculate Winding Tension?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Winding Tension.

- First, determine the winding torque (in-lbf).
- Next, determine the winding radius (in).
- Next, gather the formula from above = WT = T / WR.
- Finally, calculate the Winding Tension.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

winding torque (in-lbf) = 275

winding radius (in) = 5

WT = T / WR** **= ?
