NEWTONMETER OF TORQUE
The unit of torque in the meterkilogramsecond system, equal to the torque produced by 1 newton of force acting at a perpendicular distance of 1 meter from an axis of rotation. Abbreviated Nm.

METERKILOGRAM
1. A unit of energy or work in a meterkilogramsecond gravitational system, equal to the work done by a kilogramforce when the point at which the force is applied is displaced 1 meter in the direction of the force; equal to 9.80665 joules. Abbreviated mkgf. Also known as meter kilogramforce. 2. A unit of torque, equal to the torque produced by a kilogramforce acting at a perpendicular distance of 1 meter from the axis of rotation.
