Torque can be taken as analogus to force. As force is necessary for translational acceleration so on torque is necessary for angular acceleration.

Torque is a rotational force. It is measured in units of force multiplied by a unit of distance. For example, a foot pound is one pound of force at a distance of one foot. It can give you an indication of how strong an engine is (500 ft-lbs is a LOT of torque) or how tight you need to have a bolt. The lug nuts on your wheels need to be about 100 ft-lbs, the bolts on your suspension twice that or more.
