Torque is a vector quantity. It is a vector or cross product of moment arm and force and its direction is perpendicular to the plane containing force and moment arm. Torque is maximum when the angle between force and moment arm is 90 degree and it is zero when force and moment arm are parallel or anti parallel.

T = r x f

T = rf Sin theta
