 Sci Advisor P: 905 In translational motion, work done (energy) is $$E=\int Fdx$$ In the same manner, in rotational motion, $$E=\int\tau d\theta$$ Since $$\inline{\theta}$$ is dimensionless, torque $$\inline{\tau}$$ has same units as energy. If it helps in keeping things apart, you can think of the units of torque as being say joules per radian.
