**Expand Hint**

Torque (also called moment or couple) is the rotational equivalent of a linear force. It is the force that tends to produce torsion around an axis.

$$$\tau = r \times F$$$

where
$$F$$
is the force,
$$\tau$$
is the torque, and
$$r$$
is the distance between where the force is applied and where the torque is measured.

The SI unit for torque is N∙m.

Torque (also called moment or couple) is the rotational equivalent of a linear force. It is the force that tends to produce torsion around an axis.

A newton is a unit of force, which is described in the following SI base units:

$$$\frac{m\cdot kg}{s^{2}}$$$

Combining all units together:

$$$\frac{m^2\cdot kg}{s^{2}}$$$

$$$\frac{m^2\cdot kg}{s^{2}}$$$
