Pitch p is longitudinal length per thread.   Note that p = 1 / n, where n = threads per unit length.
For USA bolts, tensile stress diameter, by definition, is Dt = Dn 0.974279 p.
For USA bolts, minor (shear) diameter, by definition, is Ds = Dn 1.299038 p.
For metric bolts, tensile stress diameter, by definition, is Dt = Dn 0.938194 p.
For metric bolts, minor (shear) diameter, by definition, is Ds = Dn 1.226869 p.
