Enter the weight (N), the distance from the axis of rotation (m), and the angle into the Hinge Torque Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Hinge Torque.

## Hinge Torque Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Hinge Torque.

HT = W * D * COS(a)

Variables:

• HT is the Hinge Torque (N-m)
• W is the weight (N)
• D is the distance from the axis of rotation (m)
• a is the angle

## How to Calculate Hinge Torque?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Hinge Torque.

1. First, determine the weight (N).
2. Next, determine the distance from the axis of rotation (m).
3. Next, determine the angle.
4. Next, gather the formula from above = HT = W * D * COS(a).
5. Finally, calculate the Hinge Torque.
6. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem:

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

weight (N) = 300

distance from the axis of rotation (m) = .6

angle = 45

HT = W * D * COS(a) =  ?
