**Q: **Is torque defined as the cross product of the vector by which the force's application point is offset relative to the fixed suspension point and the force vector? ¶

**A: **Yes, and which tends to produce rotational motion.

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

**A: **Yes.

**Q: **Is torque increased? ¶

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

**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 sometimes listed with units that do not make dimensional sense? ¶

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

**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 entirely different concepts? ¶

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

**Q: **Is torque the newton metre? ¶

**A: **Yes, For more on the units of torque, see Units.

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

**A: **Yes.

**Q: **Is torque not necessarily limited to rotation around a fixed axis? ¶

**A: **Yes, and however.

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

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

**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 written? ¶

**A: **Yes, If body is in translatory equilibrium then the torque equation is the same about all points in the plane of motion.

**Q: **Is torque a measure of the turning force on an object such as a bolt or a flywheel? ¶

**A: **Yes.

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

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

**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.
