Enter the total work (J), the displacement (m), and the radius (m) into the calculator to determine the Torque From Displacement. 

Torque From Displacement Formula

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

T = W/d * r
  • Where T is the Torque From Displacement (N-m)
  • W is the total work (J) 
  • d is the displacement (m) 
  • r is the radius (m) 

To calculate torque from displacement, divide the work by the displacement, then multiply by the radius.

How to Calculate Torque From Displacement?

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

Example Problem #1

  1. First, determine the total work (J). In this example, the total work (J) is given as 50 .
  2. Next, determine the displacement (m). For this problem, the displacement (m) is given as  5 .
  3. Next, determine the radius (m). In this case, the radius (m) is found to be 10.
  4. Finally, calculate the Torque From Displacement using the formula above: 

T = W/d * r

Inserting the values from above and solving yields: 

T = 50/5 * 10 = 100 (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:

total work (J) = 60

displacement (m) = 3

radius (m) = 20

Enter these given values yields: 

T = 60/3 * 20 = 400 (N-m)
