Torque Equivalents - Conversion Calculator
Engineering Calculators | Conversions & Constants This calculator will convert your torque unit into other torque units. Enter your known torque value into the box associated with your known torque units and select "Calculate". Units converted include: N-m to Kgf-cm, Ft-lbs to N-m, in-lbs to ft-lbs, etc. Note: Values should be entered consistant with the indicated units:
Torque, moment, or moment of force is the unit of 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 vector and the force vector, 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 (turning force) that loosens or tightens the nut or bolt.
