9.1 Torque

A torque is an action resulting from a force that causes objects to rotate.

Torque is not the same thing as force.

Torque is created by force, but torque also depends on the point of application and the direction of the force.

A door pushed at its handle will easily turn and open, but a door pushed near its hinges will not move as easily.
