I was wondering if anyone can help me in gettting the correct torque readings. I have a torque wrench that is only reading Cm-Kg or M-Kg, however the torque specs if need are nm. Can anyone enlighten me as how to convert this or am I already looking at the correct nomenclature and just don't know it. Please help the drool is starting to make the garage floor very slick.

first: kg=kilogram, m=meter, N=newton

1kg = 9.8N for this planet.

so if you have a torque reading of 1kg-m, that is equal to 9.8N-m

if you have

Force = Mass X Acceleration

Unit of Force = Newtons.

Acceleration of a body due to gravitational force acting on it = 9.8 metres/sec.sqare.

So Force acted on a 1kg body = 9.8 newtons.

Torque experienced = Force X distance from the centre of mass of the body
= Newton metres.
