## What is Torque?

Just as a force is what causes an object to accelerate in linear kinematics, torque is what causes an object to acquire angular acceleration. Torque is a vector quantity. The direction of the torque vector depends on the direction of the force on the axis. The terminology used when describing torque can be confusing. We sometimes use the term moment, or moment of force interchangeably with torque. The radius at which the force acts is sometimes called the moment arm.

## Classification of Torque

Torque can be classified into two types: Static and Dynamic Torque. Static torque is one that does not produce an angular acceleration. Someone pushing on a closed-door is applying a static torque to the door because the door is not rotating about its hinges, despite the force applied while a drive shaft in a racing car accelerating from the start line is carrying a dynamic torque because it must be producing an angular acceleration of the wheels given that the car is accelerating along the track.

## How to Calculate Torque?

Torque calculator uses Torque=Force*Displacement*sin(θ) to calculate the Torque, Torque is described as the turning effect of force on the axis of rotation. In brief, it is a moment of force. It is characterized by τ. Torque and is denoted by τ symbol.

How to calculate Torque using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Torque, enter Force (F), Displacement (d) and θ (θ) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Torque calculation can be explained with given input values -> 85.50504 = 2.5*100*sin(20).

### FAQ

What is Torque?
Torque is described as the turning effect of force on the axis of rotation. In brief, it is a moment of force. It is characterized by τ and is represented as τ=F*d*sin(θ) or Torque=Force*Displacement*sin(θ). Force is any interaction that, when unopposed, will change the motion of an object. In other words, a force can cause an object with mass to change its velocity, Displacement is a vector quantity that refers to "how far out of place an object is"; it is the object's overall change in position and θ is the angle between the linear force and the displacement.
How to calculate Torque?
Torque is described as the turning effect of force on the axis of rotation. In brief, it is a moment of force. It is characterized by τ is calculated using Torque=Force*Displacement*sin(θ). To calculate Torque, you need Force (F), Displacement (d) and θ (θ). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Force, Displacement and θ and hit the calculate button.
