Torque Converter

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.

    Formula

    Torque = Distance from the center * Force

    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
