torque

(tork)
1. a rotary force causing part of a structure to twist about an axis. Symbol τ.
2. in dentistry, the rotation of a tooth on its long axis, especially the movement of the apical portions of the teeth by use of orthodontic appliances.

torque

Etymology: L, torquere, to twist
1 a twisting force produced by contraction of the medial femoral muscles that tend to rotate the thigh medially.
2 in dentistry, a force applied to a tooth to rotate it on a mesiodistal or buccolingual axis.
3 a rotary force applied to a denture base. Compare torsion.

moment of force

the rotational 'turning effect' of a force. Calculated as the product of the force and the perpendicular (i.e. at 90°) distance between the point of application (and direction) of the force and the pivot; also known as torque. net moment of force the mathematical result of all the moments applied to an object or body, taking into account the size and direction of the moments. See fig overleaf .

torque (tôrk),

n 1. a force that produces or tends to produce rotation in a body. Such force applied to a tooth tends to cause rotation around its long axis.
2. force applied to a tooth to produce rotation of a tooth on a mesiodistal or buccolingual (labiolingual) axis.
3. a rotary force applied to a denture base.
