1. Torque A force applied at a right angle to a lever will generate a torque. The distance from the pivot to the point of force application will be linearly proportional to the torque produced.
Force causes a change in linear motion Torque causes a change in angular motion Increase with amount of force and perpendicular distance (lever arm) from axis to point of force Unit : Nm Fl τ=
