Torque Torque is the combination of force applied at a point
with the right angle (perpendicular) distance from that
point to the axis of rotation (in our case, this'll be an
axle). You can think of torque as being essentially a
"twisting force." The formula to compute torque about an
axis is simply this: T = F * d, where F = Force (here, the force applied
perpendicular to the axis) d = Distance In 2 dimensions, you can visualize this simply: For more details on the subject, see the BEAM
From the Ground Up tutorial on torque here.
