Best Answer

One inch-pound is the amount of torque produced by a force of one pound placed one inch away from the fulcrum, where the measurement is taken. One foot-pound is the amount of torque produced by one pound of force placed one foot away from the fulcrum. Since there are 12 inches in a foot, one foot-pound equals twelve inch-pounds. Remember, 12 inch-pounds can equal twelve pounds one inch from the fulcrum or one pound twelve inches (one foot) from the fulcrum.
