You must have heard about the word Torque whenever something comes up relating to the cars, their engine power or any automotive discussion. Torque is defined as a measurement of the force applied to the rotating object. It is the torque that depends on the rotating power and the distance between the axis. A task that involves rotating any item with force definitely needs the information of how much torque it is going to produce. Torque is an essential element for acceleration. If the force is perpendicular to the lever, there will be a more initial force generated for acceleration. For instance, electric cars have more powered initial torque that makes them accelerate faster than petrol cars as electric cars have all the torque right from zero rpm.
Humans have been pushing and pulling the levers by themselves and with the help of the livestock. However, over time, the distances have increased; thus, more power is required to carry out the operations involving rotation. The simplest way to calculate the Torque is by multiplying the Force (F) with the Distance (X).
Instant Torque has been the new best thing about electric cars. These have an advantage over the gasoline cars in their efficiency, speed, and torque. The auto consumer is also demanding more speed, and torque that continues for a longer duration and the automakers have been looking for green ways to provide for the supply for this demand in the market. Companies like Tesla, BMW, and Porsche, have emerged with their electronic vehicles that are not only green but produce a ridiculous amount of torque and speed. The ludicrous mode in Tesla has beaten off the many petrol heads in 0-100 drag races. An average may have an idea in the mind that higher the engine power the more will be the torque. The maximum torque will be produced when the air, space, and fuel come into contact to generate the most considerable vertical force. In the case of the electric motors, an electric charge causes a massive rotation with-in internal magnetic field thus producing maximum torque.
Bicycle Pedals is also a visible example of torque generation. The further we place our legs from the center of the bicycle, the easier it is to rotate the pedals at a faster pace. However, since our legs have limited length, therefore, the length of the pedals is limited too. The changes in the design of the bicycle can produce more torque such as slight extension in the length of the pedals. Wrenches are another excellent example of the understanding of how the torque works. The design of the wrench does not only provide an excellent grip to tighten the bolts and nuts but if the length of the handle is long, it will offer more torque and increases the force applied to the wrench. Seesaw makes a perfect example for the torque. When two children sit on the seesaw, their weight produces the motion to go up and down. There will be more torque if the length of the seesaw is longer from the center.
We ensure that the results provided by our converters and calculators are correct. The free online torque unit conversion tool is easy to use. There are five torque conversion units that you can use for different purposes without any confusion.
- Just select the unit that you want to convert from the left box containing the list of units. Enter the value into the “From“ field.
- Then all you have to do is select the unit to convert in the right box containing the list of units such as Newton-meter (Nm), Dyne-centimeter (dy cm), Kgrf-meter (kgf m), lbf- inch and also the lbf-foot.
That’s all. The result will then instantly appear in the “To” box.
