## What is Torque?

Torque measures rotational force helpful in mechanics and engineering.

It quantifies the force applied to rotate an object around an axis, such as when using a wrench to tighten a bolt.

## Common Units of Torque

Torque can be expressed in several units, each relevant to different contexts:

**Newton-Meters (Nm):**The standard SI unit for torque, commonly used in scientific and engineering applications.**Pound-Feet (lb-ft):**Commonly used in the United States, especially in automotive and industrial contexts.**Pound-Inches (lb-in):**Used for smaller scales or lower torque values, often seen in precision instruments.**Kilograms-Meters (kg-m):**Used in some engineering contexts, particularly outside English-speaking countries.**Ounces-Inches (oz-in):**Suitable for very small torque values, such as in precision machinery.

## Using the Torque Conversion Chart

The torque conversion chart allows you to translate torque values between different units easily.

For example, if you have a torque measurement of 10 Newton-Meters, the chart shows that it is approximately 7.3762 Pound-Feet.

This helps when comparing specifications or working with equipment that uses different units.

## Conversion Formulas

For manual conversions, you can use the following formulas:

**Newton-Meters to Pound-Feet:****Formula:**`lb-ft = Nm × 0.73756`

**Pound-Feet to Newton-Meters:****Formula:**`Nm = lb-ft × 1.35582`

**Pound-Inches to Newton-Meters:****Formula:**`Nm = lb-in × 0.113`

**Newton-Meters to Pound-Inches:****Formula:**`lb-in = Nm × 8.8507`

**Kilograms-Meters to Newton-Meters:****Formula:**`Nm = kg-m × 9.80665`

**Newton-Meters to Kilograms-Meters:****Formula:**`kg-m = Nm × 0.10197`

**Ounces-Inches to Newton-Meters:****Formula:**`Nm = oz-in × 0.00706`

**Newton-Meters to Ounces-Inches:****Formula:**`oz-in = Nm × 141.6`

These formulas are designed to convert between different torque units, making it easier to work with various systems and specifications.
