Torque can be calculated by equation T=F*r*sin theta) where F= force causing torque, r= length of force vector & theta is angle between them.

1. Consult your engine's service manual for the correct torque values for the head bolts. The service manual should also specify the correct sequence in which to torque the head bolts

If you're looking for a purely mathematical calculation based on the limit of the bolt to withstand rotational shearing force, you would need to determine two things. (1) The total

The question is put too simply to answer as put. Basically torque is the ability of a motor to pull a load.
