I have an equation taken from a book that when converting from imperial to metric gives me the complete wrong answer when converting back afterwards... it seems simple but im obviously missing a trick, can anybody help?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Imperial Equation

Angular Rate / (Lever Length2 x pi /180) = Roll Bar Rate (in*lbs)

75.46in*lb / (7in^2 * pi / 180) = 88.24 (in*lbs)

Metric Equation

0.892m*kg / (0.178m^2 * pi / 180) = 1618.035 (m*kg)

Converting 1618.035m*kg to in*lbs gives 140439.1994in*lbs
