# Torque Unit Converter

Last updated: Saturday, April 29, 2023

In physics, torque is a measure of the twisting force that is applied to an object, causing it to rotate about an axis or pivot point. It is a vector quantity, with both magnitude and direction, and is measured in units of newton-meters (Nm) or pound-feet (lb-ft).

Torque is a fundamental concept in mechanics and is used to describe the rotational motion of objects. The amount of torque that is produced by a force depends on the magnitude of the force and the distance between the force and the axis of rotation. The formula for torque is T = r x F, where T is the torque, r is the distance from the axis of rotation to the point where the force is applied, and F is the force.

Torque is involved in many everyday activities, such as opening a door, tightening a bolt, or pedaling a bicycle. In machines and mechanical systems, torque is used to transmit power and to control the motion of moving parts. The study of torque is essential in the design and engineering of many devices, including engines, motors, and turbines.

The SI unit of Torque is newton • meter [ N • m ]
