NEWTON-METER OF TORQUE

The unit of torque in the meter-kilogram-second 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 N-m.

METER-KILOGRAM

1. A unit of energy or work in a meter-kilogram-second 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 m-kgf. Also known as meter kilogram-force. 2. A unit of torque, equal to the torque produced by a kilogram-force acting at a perpendicular distance of 1 meter from the axis of rotation.

MECHANICAL TORQUE CONVERTER

A torque converter, such as a pair of gears, that transmits power with only incidental losses.

HYSTERESIS CLUTCH

A clutch in which torque is produced by attraction between induced poles in a magnetized iron ring and the control field.

HOTCHKISS DRIVE

An automobile rear suspension designed to take torque reactions through longitudinal leaf springs.

BROOKFIELD VISCOSITY

Apparent viscosity in cP determined by Brookfield viscometer, which measures the torque required to rotate a spindle at constant speed in oil of a given temperature. Basis for ASTM Method D 2983; used for measuring low temperature viscosity of lubricants.

INPUT AXIS

The axis of applied torque of a gyroscope

TORQUE WRENCH

Wrench with adjustable torque limit. Used to ensure even and uniform tension is applied while tightening.

REAL PRECESSION

Precession of a gyroscope resulting from an applied torque such as that resulting from friction and dynamic unbalance as opposed to APPARENT PRECESSION. Also called INDUCED PRECESSION, PRECESSION.
