1. Torque

In physics and mechanics, torque is the rotational equivalent of linear force. It is also referred to as the moment of force (also abbreviated to moment). It represents the capability of a force to produce change in the rotational motion of the body. The concept originated with the studies by Archimedes of the usage of levers, which is reflected in his famous quote: "Give me a lever and a place to stand and I will move the Earth". Just as a linear force is a push or a pull, a torque can be thought of as a twist to an object around a specific axis. Torque is defined as the product of the magnitude of the perpendicular component of the force and the distance of the line of action of a force from the point around which it is being determined. The law of conservation of energy can also be used to understand torque. The symbol for torque is typically τ {\displaystyle {\boldsymbol {\tau }}} , the lowercase Greek letter tau. When being referred to as moment of force, it is commonly denoted by M. In three dimensions, the torque is a pseudovector; for point particles, it is given by the cross product of the position vector (distance vector) and the force vector.

1. torque

Torque is a measure of the force that can cause an object to rotate about an axis. It is a vector quantity, meaning it has both direction and magnitude, and is usually represented as the product of the force applied and the distance from the axis of rotation to the point where the force is applied. Torque is an important concept in physics and engineering, particularly in the study of mechanical systems.

1. Torque

Torque, moment or moment of force, is the tendency of a force to rotate an object about an axis, fulcrum, or pivot. Just as a force is a push or a pull, a torque can be thought of as a twist to an object. Mathematically, torque is defined as the cross product of the lever-arm distance and force, which tends to produce rotation. Loosely speaking, torque is a measure of the turning force on an object such as a bolt or a flywheel. For example, pushing or pulling the handle of a wrench connected to a nut or bolt produces a torque that loosens or tightens the nut or bolt. The symbol for torque is typically τ, the Greek letter tau. When it is called moment, it is commonly denoted M. The magnitude of torque depends on three quantities: the force applied, the length of the lever arm connecting the axis to the point of force application, and the angle between the force vector and the lever arm. In symbols: where The length of the lever arm is particularly important; choosing this length appropriately lies behind the operation of levers, pulleys, gears, and most other simple machines involving a mechanical advantage. The SI unit for torque is the newton metre. For more on the units of torque, see below.

1. Torque

The rotational force about an axis that is equal to the product of a force times the distance from the axis where the force is applied.

1. Torque

A force tending to produce torsion around an axis. An example is the pulling or turning moment of an armature of an electric motor upon its shaft. It is often expressed as pounds of pull excited at the end of a lever arm one foot long. The expression is due to Prof. James Thompson, then of the University of Glasgow. "Just as the Newtonian definition of force is that which produces or tends to produce motion (along a line), so torque may be defined as that which produces or tends to produce torsion (around an axis). It is better to use a term which treats this action as a single definite entity than to use terms like 'couple' and 'moment,' which suggest more complex ideas." (S. P. Thompson.) A force, acting with radius r gives a torque equal to f X r ;  f and r may be expressed in any units. S. P. Thompson gives the following equivalents : To reduce   dyne-centimeters to gram centimeters, divide by   981   dyne-centimeters to meter-kilograms   divide by   981E5   dyne-centimeter, to pound-feet        divide by   13.56E6   pound-feet to meter-kilograms         divide by   7.23 In each of these compound units the first unit is the force and the second unit is the radius or lever arm of the torque. Synonyms--Turning Moment--Moment of Couple--Axial Couple--Angular Force--Axial Force.

Examples of Torque in a Sentence

1. The doctor said,' It's going to give you the best chance to get back to an active lifestyle and, hopefully, racing professionally again.' they literally get four titanium screws and a torque wrench and tighten them into your skull with just a local anesthetic. Every time a screw comes loose, they screw it deeper into your skull. I wouldn't wish it upon my worst enemy.

2. If we have a moving mass in front, that creates also a disturbance in the legs. So what we're developing is algorithms that can take into account that external disturbance from the payload or from the arm. And then servo the legs, control the legs in a way to compensate for these disturbances. And we've managed to do this very well; there's an example where we moved the arm left and right relatively fast, and if we don't use the smart controller the robot moves a lot. But if we turn on the smart controller, the torque and forces in the cylinders and joints are optimized so that the robot is relatively firm and rejects all these external disturbances.
