  torque. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
The magnitude of the torque acting on a body is equal to the product of the force acting on the body and the distance from its point of application to the axis around which the body is free to rotate.
The net torque acting on a body is always equal to the product of the body’s moment of inertia about its axis of rotation and its observed angular acceleration.
Units of torque are units of force multiplied by units of distance, e.g., newton-meters, dyne-centimeters, and foot-pounds (or pound-feet).

  A.K.O. Inc. - What is torque?
Simple leverage is the same as torque and both are measured in terms of force and distance (distance is the length of the lever, force is the amount of pulling or pushing applied at the end of the lever).
A torque wrench is used in conjunction with a threaded fastener for the single purpose of controlling the clamping ability of the fastener.
Since the torque applied to the head of the fastener is directly proportional, or nearly so, to the load applied, it is possible to measure bolt stress by means of a torque wrench.

 Torque
The torque effect on the fuselage is a direct result of the work/resistance of the main rotor.
Compensation for torque in the single main rotor helicopter is accomplished by means of a variable pitch anti-torque rotor (tail rotor) located on the end of a tail boom extension at the rear of the fuselage.
Since torque effect varies during flight when power changes are made, it is necessary to vary the thrust of the tail rotor.

 All about torque
The torque, specified with regard to the axis of rotation, is equal to the magnitude of the component of the force vector lying in the plane perpendicular to the axis, multiplied by the shortest distance between the axis and the direction of the force component.
So in short, torque is the combination of force applied at a point with the right angle (perpendicular) distance from that point to the axis of rotation (in our case, this'll be an axle).
Now torque stays the same (we like to say "remains constant") all along the shaft so at the big gear (#2) it still has 1 inch-ounce of torque trying to turn it.
