**Q: **Is torque a pseudovector? ¶

**A: **Yes, for point particles, it is given by the cross product of the position vector and the force vector.

**Q: **Is torque in pounds-force feet and rotational speed in revolutions per minute? ¶

**A: **Yes, and the above equation gives power in foot pounds-force per minute.

**Q: **Is torque sometimes listed with units that do not make dimensional sense? ¶

**A: **Yes, such as the gram-centimeter.

**Q: **Is torque allowed to act through a rotational distance? ¶

**A: **Yes, and it is doing work.

**Q: **Is torque part of the basic specification of an engine: the power output of an engine is expressed as its torque multiplied by its rotational speed of the axis? ¶

**A: **Yes.

**Q: **Is torque in newton metres and rotational speed in revolutions per second? ¶

**A: **Yes, and the above equation gives power in newton metres per second or watts.

**Q: **Is torque referred to as moment of force? ¶

**A: **Yes, and usually shortened to moment.

**Q: **Is torque referred to using different vocabulary depending on geographical location and field of study? ¶

**A: **Yes.

**Q: **Was torque apparently introduced into English scientific literature by James Thomson? ¶

**A: **Yes, and the brother of Lord Kelvin, in 1884.

**Q: **Is torque N⋅m/rad? ¶

**A: **Yes.

**Q: **Is torque increased? ¶

**A: **Yes, and product of which does not change.

**Q: **Is torque entirely different concepts? ¶

**A: **Yes, so the practice of using different unit names helps avoid mistakes and misunderstandings.

**Q: **Is torque defined mathematically as the rate of change of angular momentum of an object? ¶

**A: **Yes.
