Torque is a twisting resulting from a force which produces rotational motion or torsion. Rotational motion or spinning is dynamic. Torsion is static which does not result in motion. The center of rotation is the moment or axis. The distance or length where the force is applied is known as the lever arm.
Torque measurement has many uses. Torque is commonly used to describe the capacities of automobile engines and motors. The engines produces rotational motion which moves the crank shaft, transmission, drive shaft, axles and wheels of a car. The torque wrench allows one to tighten bolts and fasteners to design specifications.
The newton-meter and foot-pounds are common units of torque.
Force is an interaction between two objects which causes a change in object motion. Typically, it causes an object with mass to accelerate or decelerate. Force can also be described as a pull or push. It is a vector quantity with a direction and magnitude.
Distance is the length from the center of rotation (pivot point) to the point where the force is applied. This is commonly known as the lever arm.
