# Torque

**Formula:**`τ = r × F`

## Introduction to Torque Calculator

Torque, denoted by the Greek letter tau (τ), represents the rotational force applied with a specific lever arm. It is calculated by multiplying the applied force ** F** with the lever arm distance

**. The result provides insight into the ability of the force to induce rotation around a pivot point.**

*r*## Parameter usage:

`F`

= applied force`r`

= lever arm distance

## Example valid values:

`F`

= 10`r`

= 5

## Output:

`τ`

= torque

## Data validation

The force and distance should be greater than zero.

## Summary

This calculator provides the torque generated by a force when applied at a specific distance from the axis of rotation.
