What is Torque?
Torque in both mechanics and physics can be defined as: the rotational equivalence of linear force.
Depending on the field of study It is also referenced as:
- moment of force
- rotational force
- turning effect
Archimedes founded the concept during his work with levers. Linear force happens during a push or a pull. As such, torque occurs during the twisting action around an axis.
Torque is typically symbolized by the Greek letter tau:
