TERMINOLOGIES
The pitch “p” is the distance between adjacent thread forms measured parallel to the thread axis.
The pitch is the reciprocal of the number of thread forms per inch N.

The major diameter “d” is the largest diameter of a screw thread d thread. The minor (or root) diameter “dr” is the smallest diameter of a screw thread. The pitch diameter “dp” is a theoretical diameter between the major and minor diameters. The lead “l” is the distance the nut moves parallel to the screw axis p when the nut is given one turn.
For a single thread, the lead is the same as the pitch.

5/8 in18 UNRF or 0.THREAD STANDARD American National (Unified) thread standard Thread size is specified by giving the # of threads per inch N N. and the thread series. Thread angle is 60◦ and the crests of the thread may be either flat or rounded. The difference is that a root radius must be used in the UNR series. Unified threads are specified by stating the nominal major diameter. the number of threads per inch. which reduced thread stress-concentration factors. rounded Two major series are: UN and UNR. for example. 3 Element of Machine Dynamics and Design / Erum Khan .
