‘Torque transducers and torque sensors explained’
As this article from Applied Measurements explains, torque is a twisting or turning force about an axis that can be applied in a clockwise or counterclockwise direction. A good example of this is a vehicle steering mechanism; to turn a corner, the driver applies a force to the steering wheel that applies a torque directly to the steering column. This torque is generated by a combination of the force from the driver’s hands and the distance the hands are from the centre of the wheel.
