Pitch diameter of roller chain wheels

For the convenience of the calculation we give hereafter a table in which, for the most common teeth numbers, and for a chain of one inch pitch, the pitch diameter is indicated. Since the pitch diameter is proportional with the pitch it is sufficient to multiply the figure of the table with the pitch of the chain in English inches expressed as a decimal number.
