Enter the acceleration (m/s^2), the mass (kg), and the radius (m) into the calculator to determine the Torque From Acceleration. 

Torque From Acceleration Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Torque From Acceleration.

T = a*m*r
  • Where T is the Torque From Acceleration (N-m)
  • a is the acceleration (m/s^2) 
  • m is the mass (kg) 
  • r is the radius (m) 

To calculate the torque using acceleration, multiply the acceleration by the mass and radius.

How to Calculate Torque From Acceleration?

The following example problems outline how to calculate the Torque From Acceleration.

Example Problem #1

  1. First, determine the acceleration (m/s^2). In this example, the acceleration (m/s^2) is given as 12 .
  2. Next, determine the mass (kg). For this problem, the mass (kg) is given as  5 .
  3. Next, determine the radius (m). In this case, the radius (m) is found to be 100.
  4. Finally, calculate the Torque From Acceleration using the formula above: 

T = a*m*r

Inserting the values from above and solving yields: 

T = 12*5*100 = 6,000 (N-m)

Example Problem #2

Using the same method as above, determine the variables required by the equation. For this example problem, these are provided as:

acceleration (m/s^2) = 50

mass (kg) = 4

radius (m) = 20

Enter these given values yields: 

T = 50*4*20 = 4,000 (N-m)
