Enter the voltage, current, efficiency, and rpm of an electric motor to determine the torque produced by the motor.

## Electric Motor Torque Formula

The following formula is used to calculate an electric motor torque.

t = (I*V*E/100*60)/(rpm*2*pi)

- Where I is the current (amps)
- V is the voltage (volts)
- E is the efficiency of the motor (%)
- RPM is the rotations per minute

## Electric Motor Torque Definition

Electric motor torque is the total torque generated by an electric motor given a current, voltage, efficiency, and RPM.
