What is force?Force is that which causes a change in state of motion.Torque is the analogy of Force in rotational mechanics.It makes a body rotate.It is the rotating effect of a force.$\tau=I$

2. anonymous

torque =moment of inertia*Angular acceleration(sorry for the above wrong eq)

3. anonymous

Torque is an Analog of Force $\tau = I \alpha$

@Yahoo! you could add alpha right?when i typed it in equations option it didnt come

The formula you are probably looking for might also be T = rFsin(theta)

@JocelynC its another way of representing it.
