How do i calculate the strength of a friction hinge?

Dears,

I am planning to use a single friction hinge at the center of the door. The door height is 7 inches and length is 17 inches. Weight of the door is 4.5 pound. Length of the hinge is 3.2 inches and pin diameter is .230 inches. How do i calculate if the hinge is good enough for the application?
