How to Use "Angular Torque Calculator"

The "Angular Torque Calculator" is a tool designed to calculate the angular torque of an object based on the applied force and the distance from the pivot point. Angular torque, also known as moment of force, is a fundamental concept in physics that describes the rotational effect of a force on an object. This calculator is particularly useful in fields such as mechanics, engineering, and physics where understanding and analyzing rotational dynamics is important.

Instructions for Utilizing the Calculator

To effectively utilize the "Angular Torque Calculator," follow these steps:

  1. Force: Enter the force applied to the object in newtons (N). The force represents the magnitude of the applied force that causes the rotational effect.
  2. Distance from Pivot Point: Specify the distance from the pivot point to the point where the force is applied in meters (m). This distance represents the perpendicular distance between the pivot point and the line of action of the force.
  3. Angle of Rotation: Enter the angle of rotation in radians (rad). This angle represents the angle between the line connecting the pivot point and the point of force application and the direction of the force.
  4. Convert to lbs and ft (Optional): Check the checkbox if you wish to convert the result to pounds and feet.

After entering the required data, click the "Angular Torque Calculator" button to initiate the calculation.

Angular Torque Formula

The angular torque (τ) can be calculated using the following formula:

τ = force × distance × sin(angle)


  • force is the applied force in newtons (N),
  • distance is the distance from the pivot point in meters (m),
  • angle is the angle of rotation in radians (rad).

Illustrative Example

Let's consider an example to illustrate the usage of the "Angular Torque Calculator." Suppose we have a force of 10 N applied to an object at a distance of 0.5 m from the pivot point. The angle of rotation is 0.8 radians.

By inputting these values into the calculator and clicking the "Angular Torque Calculator" button, we obtain the following results:

  • Force: 10 N
  • Distance from Pivot Point: 0.5 m
  • Angle of Rotation: 0.8 rad
  • Convert to lbs and ft: No
  • Result: 4 N m

The calculated angular torque is 4 N m, which represents the rotational effect of the applied force.

Illustrative Table Example

Here is an example table showcasing various sets of input values and their corresponding angular torque calculations:

Note: Conversion to pounds and feet is optional, and the direction of rotation is not considered in this calculator.

The "Angular Torque Calculator" is a valuable tool for calculating the angular torque of an object based on the applied force and the distance from the pivot point. By understanding and utilizing this calculator, individuals in physics, engineering, and mechanics can effectively analyze and study rotational dynamics.
