The relation between torque, moment of inertia and angular acceleration is:

T=Ia

Have a look to it's units:

(N.m)=(kg.m^2).(Rad/s^2) >>>> N=kg.m.Rad/s^2

Please explain the equation Dimensionally. How (kg.m.Rad/s^2) is equal to N?

Thanks.

Starting with F = m⋅a, the dimensions give N = kg⋅m/sPlease explain the equation Dimensionally. How (kg.m.Rad/s^2) is equal to N?
