Torque is a measure of the force that can cause an object to rotate around an axis.
The concept of torque was first defined by Archimedes, a Greek mathematician and scientist, in the 3rd century BC.
Archimedes defined torque as the product of a force and the distance from the axis of rotation to the point of application of that force. This is known as the "principle of the lever."
While there may have been earlier observations of torque, Archimedes was the first to provide a mathematical definition and explanation of the concept.
Torque is typically measured in units of newton-meters (N·m) or foot-pounds (ft·lb). It can also be calculated by multiplying the force applied by the distance from the axis of rotation to the point of application of that force.
