I still haven't grasped the physical meaning of torque.T= r vect x F vectAccording to crossproduct rule, the torque acts perpendicular (say Z axis) to the plane containing the force and position vectors (say X and Y axes).But if torque is what causes the turning effect, how can it be in the Z axis when motion is in the X-Y plane?
