|English term or phrase: 50,000 ft²/lb|
|Aus einem Buch über Bootsbau:|
20lb (9.07kg) saved at the head of a 50ft (15.24m) mast for instance, equates to a 50,000 ft²/lb saving as far as pitching moment!
Übersetzungsversuch: Eine Gewichtsersparnis von 9 kg im Topp eines 15 m hohen Masts entspricht beispielsweise einem um etwa *50,000 ft²/lb* verringerten Stampfmoment.
Danke für Erläuterungen zur Maßeinheit in *.
In all the sources I checked, pitching moment is given in lb/ft (ref 1).
Conversion: 1 lb/ft x 1,3558179 = Nm
I am pretty sure it should be 'lb/ft', which is a force (moment).
ft²/lb is surface area per unit of weight, which makes no sense in your context.
(lb/ft² would be a pressure, which might make sense, except that the value is ridiculously high).
"Less weight aloft reduces pitching moment" (see ref 2)
