British Standard Limits and Fits BS 4500:1969
IT

The specific Tolerance for a particular IT grade is calculated via the following formula:

T=10^{0.2 \times (ITG-1)} \cdot (0.45 \times \sqrt[3]{D}+0.001\times D)

T is the tolerance in micrometres [Ám]
D is the geometric mean dimension in millimeters [mm]
ITG is the IT Grade, a positive integer.


Not applicable to sizes below 1 mm.
The dimensions are given in 0.001 mm, except for the nominal sizes which are in millimeters.
