What is Dimensional Formula of Torque?Posted in Dimensional Formulae | Email This Post |
Force causes accelerations and Torque causes angular accelerations.Torque is proportional to the distance between the rotation axis and the point of application of the force (the point at which the force is applied).
Mathematically, Torque is defined as product of Angular acceleration and Moment of Inertia. Its formula is
Torque = Angular Acceleration X Moment of Inertia
Putting these values in above equation we get
Dimensional Formula of Torque= M1L2T-2
SI unit of Torque is N m
