Angular power? :/

Ok if something is affected by a force over a distance work is being done on the something, W = F * d

what about torques?

is something moving with an angular velocity affected by a force, effected by power? Or is it called something else?
T = F * l (armlength)
W = F * l * d
P = F * l * w (angular velocity?

Not too familiar with English physics but still, should be understandable.

Work has angular counterparts to the linear concepts just like many other kinematics ideas.

[tex]W = F*d = T \theta[/tex]

[tex]P = F*V = T \omega[/tex]

I knew it, thanks :)

Some dude made fun of me in class for using that and even the teacher questioned it, silly people.
