Enter the load of the meshing point (N) and the radius of the pitch circle (m) into the calculator to determine the Worm Gear Torque.

## Worm Gear Torque Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Worm Gear Torque.

Twg = L * r

- Where Twg is the Worm Gear Torque (N-m)
- L is the load of the meshing point (N)
- r is the radius of the pitch circle (m)

To calculate worm gear torque, multiply the load of the meshing point by the radius of the pitch circle.

## How to Calculate Worm Gear Torque?

The following two example problems outline how to calculate the Worm Gear Torque.

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the load of the meshing point (N). In this example, the load of the meshing point (N) is measured to be 50.
- Next, determine the radius of the pitch circle (m). For this problem, the radius of the pitch circle (m) is calculated to be .23.
- Finally, calculate the Worm Gear Torque using the formula above:

Twg = L * r

Inserting the values from above and solving the equation with the imputed values gives:

Twg = 50 * .23 = 11.5 (N-m)

**Example Problem #2: **

Using the same process as example problem 1, we first define the variables outlined by the formula. In this case, the values are:

load of the meshing point (N) = 1000

radius of the pitch circle (m) = .10

Entering these values yields:

Twg =1000 * .10 = 100 (N-m)
