## What is the formula for diametral pitch?

Helical Gear

Calculate | When Defined | Formula |
---|---|---|

Pitch Diameter (D) | Number of teeth (N), the Normal Diametral Pitch and the Helix Angle (A) | D = N / (Pn X cos A) |

Outside Diameter (OD) | Pitch Diameter (D) and the Addendum (a) | OD = D + (2 X a) |

Outside Diameter (OD) | Normal Diametral Pitch (P) and the Pitch Diameter (D) | OD = D + 2/Pn |

## What is gear diametral pitch?

The diametral pitch of a gear is **the number of teeth in the gear for each inch of pitch diameter**. Therefore, the diametral pitch determines the size of the gear tooth.
