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

## Gravitational Torque Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Gravitational Torque.

Tgravity = m*g*r

• Where Tgravity is the Gravitational Torque (N-m)
• m is the mass (kg)
• g is the acceleration due to gravity (m/s^2)
• r is the radius (m)

## How to Calculate Gravitational Torque?

The following example problems outline how to calculate the Gravitational Torque.

Example Problem #1

1. First, determine the mass (kg). In this example, the mass (kg) is given as 13 .
2. Next, determine the acceleration due to gravity (m/s^2). For this problem, the acceleration due to gravity (m/s^2) is given as  9.81 .
3. Next, determine the radius (m). In this case, the radius (m) is found to be 90.
4. Finally, calculate the Gravitational Torque using the formula above:

Tgravity = m*g*r

Inserting the values from above and solving yields:

Tgravity = 13*9.81*90 = 11477.7 (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:

mass (kg) = 14

acceleration due to gravity (m/s^2) = 9.81

radius (m) = 40

Enter these given values yields:

Tgravity = 14*9.81*40 = 549.36 (N-m)
