Expert Answer:

Dear student

 

torque refers to something that produces or tends to produce torsion or rotation. The torque of  force about an axis is given as the product of radius vector from the axis to the point where the force is applied and the force itself. It is expressed in N-m. It is also known as moment of force.

Hope this helps.
