### How to Find Torque?

Torque is a twisting force that tends to cause the rotation of an object. People can have a look at the below simple steps to get the torque value of difficult problems easily. Check them and follow to get the exact answer.

- Get the force and distance or length values from the question.
- Mathematically, torque is defined as multiplication of force and distance.
- Multiply the given force and distance values to find the answer.

### Torque Formula

Torque is defined as the force applied over a certain distance and is similar to work. In physics, the torque is given as the twisting force that generate rotation of object. The torque formula is given as

Torque = force x distance

T = r F sin θ

Where,

T is torque

r is radius

F is force

θ is angle between force and lever arm

**Example**

**Question: The width of a door is 40 cm. If it is released by exerting a force of 2 N at its edge (away from the hinges).Compute the torque produced which causes the door to open?**

**Solution:**

Force applied F = 2 N

Length of lever arm = d = 40 cm = 0.40 m

Torque = force x distance

= 0.40 x 20

= 8 Nm

Torque = 8 Nm

### FAQS on Torque Calculator

**1. What are the everyday examples of torque?**

We use torque directly in our every day lives. A few objects which experience torque are see-saws, hinged doors, wrenches, and more complex motors, vacuum cleaners and computer printers, dishwashers and so many more.

**2. How do you measure torque?**

Torque is measured in pounds feet. Means a force in pounds acting on the end of a lever measured in feet. The SI unit of torque is Newton Meter.

**3. What is meant by torque formula?**

The torque formula is given below:

T = f x r sinθ.

Where f is the force, r is the radius and θ is the angle between force and lever.

**4. What is the rotational equilibrium in torque?**

When the sum of all torques acting on an object is equal to zero, then it is in rotational equilibrium.
