## 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

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.
