# Torque Calculator

Torque is actually force, external or internal that reason any changes. For instance, one type of a wrench is a Tongue wrench, where the gauges are connected to each other and show the torque of an object.

In order to determine the conversion factor, detect the cell, which matches the force row and distance column.

Unit of Measurement descriptions
Force The newton, (SI unit symbol is N), is the International System of Units (SI) derived unit of force. It is the force needed to accelerate 1 kilogram of mass at the rate of 1 metre per second squared
Distance The metre (meter in American English), (SI unit symbol is m), is the fundamental unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). Since 1983 it has been defined as the distance travelled by light in a certain defined fraction of a second
Torque The newton metre is a unit of torque (also called 'moment') in the SI system. One Newton Metre is equal to the torque resulting from a force of one newton applied perpendicularly to a moment arm which is one metre long

You may set the number of decimal places in the online calculator. By default there are only two decimal places.

To find the conversion factor, locate the cell that matches the Distance column and the Force row

For example, the conversion factor for Kilogram Force - Foot is 2.99 Newton metres, to 2 decimal places

## Torque Calculations

This calculator includes the following algorithms:

• Torque is equal to the product of Distance and Force
• Force is equal to the division of Torque over Distance
• Distance is equal to the division of Torque over Force

Consequently, the Torque Calculator is available online.
