Torque is a pseudo-vector that measures the tendency of a force to rotate an object about some axis. Torque is calculated by multiplying Force and distance. The SI unit of torque is Newton meters or N*m. In short, torque is a turning or twisting force. Torque is denoted by the symbol ‘T’. The magnitude of torque depends on three quantities: the force applied, the length of the lever arm connecting the axis to the point of force application and the angle between the force vector and the lever arm.

Formula

Torque:

**T = F*D**

Force:

**F = T/D**

Distance or Length:

**D = T/F**

**Where,**

T =Torque,

F =Force,

D =Distance or Length.

Torque is the tendency of a force to cause or change rotational motion of a body. Torque is a measure of the turning force on an object such as a bolt or a flywheel. The online Torque Calculator is used to calculate the torque when force and distance are known and apply the formula.

**Example:**

Calculate the torque for the given details.

Force (F) = 25 N

Distance or Length (D) = 20 m

**Solution:**

**Apply Formula:**

T = F*D

T = 25*20

T = 500 N-m

**Torque (T) = ****500 N-m**
