60 (Foot-pounds = 81 Newton meters)

When leading Powers of 10 workshops, something that you quickly become aware of is how everything is quantified – speed, height, width, energy, weight, length, area, distance…  As global communication increases between nations (10+4), and individuals (100), conversions are made in order to make sure everyone is speaking fluently about the same piece of information.  For example,  60 Foot-pounds becomes 81 Newton meters when talking about torque wrenches.
