Torque conversion Calculation, Formula, Example

What is Torque

The torque is force applied to the certain point to hold the two joints together. Applying correct level of torque is very important if we apply more torque it tends to fracture or misalignment.

Torque conversion Formula

Look at the above picture, The torque is equals to position vector is perpendicular to force vector

The unit for torque is newton meter (NM) and also more units are available for reference check on SI units.

τ = torque vector or magnitude vector

r= position vector

F= force vector

X = this X is perpendicular to the r and F which is equates with right hand rule

𝜃 = is the angle between force vector and arm vector
