Summary:

• A torque is when a force causes rotation.
• Magnitude of torque depends on direction and magnitude of the force and on the lever arm.
• The larger the lever arm (distance between the axis of rotation and the applied force) the larger the resulting torque.
• Characters can spin by creating a torque with their feet, pushing off on the floor.
