**Torque = Distance from the center * Force**

Torque is defined as a force that tends to rotate or turn things. It can be thought of as rotational force.

A hydraulic device for the smooth transmission of power in which an engine-driven impeller transmits its momentum to a fluid held in a sealed container, which in turn drives a rotor is called as torque converter. It is also called as hydraulic coupling.

The torque units contain a distance and a force. To calculate the torque, you multiply the force by the distance from the center. Torque unit in SI system is newton meter (nm). Other force units, pound force foot (lbs ft), ounce inch, kilogram force meter are widely used.

**Example:**

Convert the 25 Newton Meters to various units.

**Solution:**

Newton Meters = 25

Milli Newton Meters = 25000

Kilogram Meters = 2.55

Kilogram Centi Meters = 254.99999999999997

Gram Centi Meters = 254925

Ounce Inches = 3540

Pound Inches = 221.27500000000003

Pound Feet = 18.45
