Torque to pounds
Does anyone know how to convert 2000 ft lbs of torque into linear weight? I have an electric brake capable of holding 2000 lbs of torque. But i dont know how to convert to actual pounds that can hold. It also involves a 100 foot lever( boom). What would the force in pounds be? the brake itself is about 15 inches in diameter.

It depends on how far from the fulcrum the weight is attached. The closer to the fulcrum, the higher the force you can achieve with the same torque.
“Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.” Archimedes

Diameter of the brake itself is only relevant in computing the torque. Once you know the torque, it doesn't make a difference.
