Torque Calculator

Calculate the torque from force or mass and radius, with different units. Another name for torque is moment or moment of force. Torque is a dimension for the rotational force at an object. The unit for torque is the newton meter, Nm, this is calculated as kilograms times square meters per square second, Nm=kg*m²/s². The common Anglo-American unit is pound-foot, ft·lb. One Newton is the mass in kilograms times the gravity acceleration.

Mass m:
Gravity acceleration g: m/s²
Force F:
Radius r:
Torque M:

Example: if two kilograms, fixed to an object, revolve with 30 centimeters radius, a torque of 5.9 newton meters occurs.
