What is Torque?

Torque, which is also referred to as moment of force, is a measurement that is used to describe the application of a force at a radial distance that typically generates rotation. For this reason torque is frequently informally referred to as "rotational force".

Essentially, torque represents the force that is applied to a lever multiplied by its distance from the lever's fulcrum. The Greek letter tau (τ) is used as the symbol for torque.

Torque can be measured using a variety of different units. These include the kilogram-force meter (kgf·m), Newton meter (N·m), and the gram-force centimeter (gf·cm).

In the United States, torque is typically measured using pound-force inches (lbf·in), pound-force foot (lbf·ft), and ounce-force inches (ozf·in).
