बल आघूर्ण (Torque

  • Torque is the measure of the force that can cause an object to rotate about an axis.
  •  Force is what causes an object to accelerate in linear kinematics. 
  • Unit : N-m
  • Similarly, torque is what causes an angular acceleration
  • Hence, torque can be defined as the rotational equivalent of linear force
  • The point where the object rotates is called the axis of rotation.
  • In physics, torque is simply the tendency of a force to turn or twist.
  • Different terminologies such as moment or moment of force are interchangeably used to describe torque.
