👋 Hello! I'm Alphonsio the robot. Ask me a question, I'll try to answer.
What is the general formula to calculate the torque generated by a given force?


The general formula to calculate the torque generated by a given force is the cross product of the force  and vector  :





With :

  •  is the torque vector expressed in newtons-meters [N.m]
  •  is the force vector expressed in newtons [N]
  •  is the vector from rotation center  to the point  where the force  is applied
