The concept of torque born of an English language word and has not yet been contemplated by the dictionary of the Royal Spanish Academy (RAE) . It can, however, be translated as "torque" and be used based on that definition in various fields.
Torque can be understood as the moment of strength or dynamic moment . It is a vector magnitude that is obtained from the point of application of the force . It consists of the vector product (the orthogonal vector that arises after a binary operation between a pair of vectors of a three-dimensional Euclidean space).
In this sense, the torque causes a rotation on the body who receives it The magnitude is typical of those elements where torsion or flexion is applied, such as a beam or axis of a machine The moment of force can be expressed through unity newton metro .
The concept also allows naming the torque , which is the dynamic moment that an engine exerts on the power transmission axis. The power of the torque will be proportional to the angular velocity of the mentioned axis.
The torsion in general On the other hand, it can be called torque. The concept, in this case, is related to the measurement of a curve.
There is collar type very old that was used by several European cultures known as torque, torq or torc. It was shaped like a circular horseshoe and its tips used to present ornaments carved with different figures.
Torque In addition, it is a film directed by Joseph Kahn and released in 2004 , a character from the videogame saga The Suffering and a small Uruguayan club founded in 2007 .
Torque and engine power of a car
It is common to find this term in the part of the manual where the specifications of the car engine or a truck, but do we know exactly what it means?
Both torque and power are indicators that let you know how the engine works, the force it can perform and how quickly it can perform a certain movement.
For a car to work, an axis that turns and provides the engine with the Energy to realize the force; said rotation movement is called torque. This can be measured from a dynamometric brake that, through an instillation, forces the motor to rotate in full capacity, while resistance pulls it and forces it to stop, counting the force of said movement.
That said, it should be clarified that it receives the name of maximum torque, the greatest force that the motor can make in a turn, which develops at a certain amount of revolutions set in advance. For example, if it is said that a vehicle with a maximum torque of 125 Nm @ 2500rpm, it is capable of producing a turning force of up to 125 newton meters, turning at 2500 revolutions per minute.
Finally, it only remains to say that the higher the value of the maximum torque of an engine, its strength will also be greater. In fact, there is a concept known as a flat engine, which refers to those vehicles that have a mechanism capable of reaching the highest possible torque in all its revolutions, especially when starting.
With regard to power, this value indicates how quickly the engine can work and is obtained by multiplying the torque by the speed performed on each turn.
