Torque is rotational or turning force

Torque is measured in length and force:

Length means distance from "center of drive" to “center of handle" Force means "pounds", “Newtons etc

The standard torque formula used to calculate torque is ”Length x Force = Torque” (L x F = T)
Example A: 2 ft. (length as shown above ) x 30 lbs. (amount of force at center of handle) = 60 ft. lbs. of torque (60 Ft. Lbs.)

Example B: 1 meter x 25 New to n s = 25 Newton Meters (2 s Nm)

TORQUE ANGLE

Auto manufacturers and makers of other high-performance equipment are increasingly specifying
fasteners with a combination of torque value followed by additional tightening with “angle" or degrees
of wrench turn. Manufacturers can calculate a more exact final "clamp"

The standard torque formula used to calculate torque is” Length x Force = Torque” (L x F = T)

Example R: 2 ft. (length as shown above ) x 30 lbs. (amount of force at center of handle) = 60 ft. lbs. of
torque (60 Ft. Lbs.) load" for their applications, since "torque & angle” minimizes the impact of thread or under-head friction see "What Does Torque Do" illustration and last bullet below).

Note: The CDI "Torque amp Angle" electronic wrenches easily.
