Expert Answer:

Dear student
 
Torque : It refers to something that produces or tends to produce torsion or rotation.
The torque of a force F about an axis is given by the cross product of the radius vector from the axis to the point where the force is applied. It is expressed in N-m. It is also known as moment of force.
