A measure of the twisting moment applied to a part under a torsional stress. Usually expressed in terms of inch pounds or foot pounds, although the terms "pound inches" and "pound feet" are technically more accurate for torsional moments.
with respect to the Edgewise appliance, it is the force system created when a rectangular arch wire is engaged in a bracket slot in torsion, and which has the effect of changing the inclination of the tooth; also refers to torsion bends (twisting) deliberately placed in a rectangular arch wire which are intended to change the inclination of the tooth
When twist is applied to thread, torque is created. These torque forces are balanced by using opposite twist in the singles and ply twist. Heat setting the thread during dyeing or autoclaving will also minimize the torque forces in the thread. Excessive torque can cause the thread to "french-knot" or kink excessively.
An internal force system, carried longitudinally through a shaft or wire, and its resultant at any location is a mechanical couple in the plane of the right cross-section. Torque (dental) Tooth movement characterized by appliance-controlled faciolingual and/or mesiodistal displacements of particles in the root(s). Torque (mechanical) A force system, the simplest form of which is a mechanical couple, that tends to produce a twisting displacement and/or deformation about a long-dimension axis of the body acted upon; e.g., torque is delivered through crown attachments to teeth by an elastically twisted arch wire.
the rotational equivalent of a force, and is calculated by multiplying the force causing rotation by the perpendicular distance from the line of action of the force to the centre of rotation. The unit is the newton metre.
A measure of rotational force. At a steady state of deflection, the mechanically applied torque is equal and opposite to the electrically developed torque. Torque is usually expressed in millimeter grams for a given angular deflection.
A force that produces or tends to produce rotation or torsion. It is a measurement of an instrument's capacity to do work or to continue to rotate under resistance to rotation. It is expressed in inch-ounces or inch-pounds.
(1) A force that produces or tends to produce rotation or torsion. The pressure, measured in foot pounds, exerted by a rotating shaft. (2) The turning power of a motor. (3) The turning effort a brake is designed to stop.
The moment of a force; the measure of a force's tendency to produce torsion and rotation about an axis, equal to the vector product of the radius vector from the axis of rotation to the point of application of the force and the force vector. Report this Word Added by: chadchm8
A twisting action in torsion springs which tends to produce rotation, equal to the load multiplied by the distance (or moment arm) from the load to the axis of the spring body. Usually expressed in oz./in., lb./in., lb./ft., or in. N/mm.
A measure of angular force which produces rotational motion. This force is defined by a linear force multiplied by a radius; e.g. lb-in. Torque is an important parameter of any motion control system. Formula: Torque (lb-ft.) = 5,250 x HP/RPM
Torque is pulling power, or what you feel when you press the accelerator. Measured in Newton metres (Nm). The amount of torque is a good measure of the engine's power for accelerating in normal driving and when towing heavy loads. Engine speed is also a factor. For example an engine which develops good torque at low engine speed can accelerate well from low speeds, tow well and work efficiently with an automatic transmission. An engine which produces its torque at higher engine speeds has to be revved much harder to accelerate well from low speeds and won't pull heavy loads so well. Such an engine is better for manual transmission, which gives more control over engine speed (see Horsepower).
A measure of the amount of twist an engine can produce. The ability of an engine to product torque is determined by an engineering test on the dynamometer, a machine that registers on a scale the pound-feet of output torque at various speeds of crankshaft revolution.
That which tends to change the rate of rotation of a body; also called the moment of force. The torque produced by rotating parts of an electric motor or internal-combustion engine is often used as a measure of its ability to do useful work. The magnitude of the torque acting on a body is equal to the product of the force acting on the body, and the distance from its point of application to the axis around which the body is free to rotate.
A force that produces or tends to produce rotation; the rotational force about a point (e.g., torque is the force required to tighten a bolt). Excessive torque forces have been associated with CTDs to the upper extremities, particularly the elbow.
Turning or twisting effort, usually measured in ft-lb or Newton-meters. It differes from work or power in that torque does not necessarily produce motion. The torque acting on a body is the product of the magnitude of a force arm (the perpendicular distance from the body's axis of rotation to the line of action of the force). This product is called the moment about this axis, or the torque.
A force in a twisting motion. In an engine, torque is the twisting motion at the crankshaft measured in foot-pounds (lb.-ft.). One foot-pound is the force of one pound acting at right angles at the end of an arm one foot long. Simply stated, torque is the engine power that gets a vehicle to speed - felt especially at off-line take-off and during acceleration.
Torque is the measurement of force given over a distance. For example, imagine a lever (like a crowbar) where you apply a force along its length (like to pry open something). This lever's torque is that force multipled by the length away from the pry point. For servos, think about the servo rotating a servo arm, the torque is the length of that arm multiplied by the force. In the USA, most servo torque is measured in oz-in (force in ounces times inches, or ounce-inch). Servo torque is measured by using force or weight at a radius from center of the output shaft to see when the servo stalls as it tries to lift the weight horizontally. To convert oz-in to kilogram-centimeters (kg-cm) just divide by 13.9.
the tendency for a shaft to twist. More torque means more tendency to twist. Early graphite shafts tended to be higher torque than their steel counterparts. Today graphite shafts are much lower torque. Just because torque is low does not mean that it is better for a given swing speed or swing type. Club fitters say that it is more important to have "correct" torque for your swing speed.
A measure of engine power, described in foot/pounds of force. 10 foot/pounds of torque would raise ten pounds of weight one foot in the air. Horsepower is a measurement of torque over a period of time.
A measure of the twisting force. Torque is measured in lb.-ft. (pound-foot) or N-m (Newton-meters). The RPM at which the engine produces maximum torque is important. For instance, if Engine A produces 200 lb.-ft. @ 3000 RPM, and Engine B supplies 200 lb.-ft. @ 5000 RPM, then Engine A will accelerate better at low speeds. Engine B will accelerate better at high speeds.
A measure of twisting force. The engine transmits this through the chain, shaft or belt to the rear wheel. The “accelerating force” whereas horsepower is the “speed force” i.e. horsepower is how fast you can go and torque is how quickly you get there.
Literally, the turning or twisting force of an engine, torque is generally used as a measure of an engine's flexibility. An engine may be very powerful, but if it has little torque then that power may only be available over a limited rev range, making it of limited use to the driver. An engine with more torque - even if it has less power - may actually prove quicker on many tracks, as the power is available over a far wider rev range and hence more accessible. Good torque is particularly vital on circuits with a number of mid- to slow-speed turns, where acceleration out of the corners is essential to a good lap time.
The static twisting force produced by an engine. Torque varies with the length of the "arm" at which the twisting force is measured. Torque is a force times the length of the measurement arm: Torque = Force x Torque Arm, where Force is the applied or the generated force and Torque Arm is the length through which that force is applied. Typical torque values are ounce-inches, pound-feet, etc.
A unit of measure describing the twisting force, or leverage, an engine can exert on the rear wheel. Typically, an engine with a lot of torque will have the potential to speed up faster at lower rpms. (See also: horsepower)
The measure of the force applied to a member to produce rotational motion usually measured in foot-pounds. Torque is determined by multiplying the applied force by the distance from the pivot point to the point where the force is applied.
Torque is a measure of the amount of force generated by the rotation of a shaft. At the levels of power developed by an IC engine it is normally measured in BHP [Brake Horse Power] whereas in lower torque devices such as servos it would be specified in Kgs/cm.
The turning or twisting force such as the force imparted on the drive line by the engine. Usually measured in lb.-ft. It differs from work or power in that torque does not necessarily produce motion. Turbo Charger An exhaust powered turbine super-charger. Turbochargers always use centrifugal-flow compressors, which operate efficiently at the high rotational speeds produced by the exhaust turbine.
Imperial measurement of the twisting force generated to lift a set weight a given distance. Used in formula with revs to give horsepower readings. Gives an engine "grunt". Turbocharging a n/a engine can more than double the torque output, interestingly, mostly less than halving the life expectancy.
This is a rotating or twisting force. Torque is what it's all about; the engine power developed from the cylinders, rods and pistons is sent through to the crankshaft for converting into a rotating motion (torque) which then is used through the transmission (or gearbox) to get the wheels moving.
Rotational force created by the engine that is transferred to the drivetrain of a motor vehicle. Torque is measured in foot-pounds or Newton-metres and highest torque output is generally at lower rev ranges.
Engine Torque, measured in pounds-feet (lb.-ft.) or Newton-metres (Nm), is the amount of twisting effort exerted at the engine's crankshaft. One pound-foot is the twisting force exerted by gravity on a one-pound weight suspended from a crankshaft by a horizontal rod one foot in length.
Turning or twisting force such as the force imparted on the drive line by the engine. Usually measured in Nm or lb-ft. It differs from work or power in that torque does not necessarily produce motion. Basically, the magnitude of a torque acting on a body is the product of the magnitude of a force and its force arm (perpendicular distance from the axis of rotation of the body to the line of action of the force). This product is called the moment of the torque about the axis or the torque.
The resistance of a shaft to twisting is its torque. Lower torque shafts twist less than do higher torque shafts and, as a result, may be recommended for stronger players. Torque is also used to define the relationship between the turning of the upper and lower body during the swing.
A force that produces, or tends to produce, rotation. Commonly measured in feet per pounds or inches per pounds A force of one pound applied to the handle of a crank, the center of which is displaced one foot from the center of the shaft, produces a torque of one foot per pound on the shaft if the force is provided perpendicular to, not along the crank. Torque can be calculated by: Torque (ft.-lbs.) = HP x 5250 RPM
The torque developed at the flywheel by an engine that is also driving normal accessories; Ford net ratings are measured with exhaust system, emission control system, fan, alternator and air cleaner and with automatic spark and fuel settings operative.
The turning effort or force applied to a shaft, usually expressed in inch-pounds or inch-ounces for fractional and sub-fractional HP motors. Starting Torque: Force produced by a motor as it begins to turn from standstill and accelerate (sometimes called locked rotor torque). Full-Load Torque: The force produced by a motor running at rated full-load speed at rated horsepower. Breakdown Torque: The maximum torque a motor will develop under increasing load conditions without an abrupt drop in speed and power. Sometimes called pull-out torque. Pull-Up Torque: The minimum torque delivered by a motor between zero and the rated RPM, equal to the maximum load a motor can accelerate to rated RPM.
In physics, torque (or often called a moment) can informally be thought of as "rotational force" or "angular force" which causes a change in rotational motion. This force is defined by linear force multiplied by a radius. The SI units for torque are newton metres.
