# What does a max torque.of 25kg.cm (6.8V) mean?

Ordering a servo and for the torque it says the maximum is 25kg.cm (6.8V). What is this pointing at? I’m under the impression that torque is in nm and that it depends on the force which can change depending on where the force is applied.

2.5 Nm does not sound stylish enough

Wow, pretty sure 2.5 will be enough for my prototype so i should be okay… Thanks!

Torque can be expressed in N.m or in kg.cm or kg.m. They are all mathematically interchangeable. I kg force is the same as 9.81 N

I've never been interested in space travel myself - it seems to be a gross waste of money when there are so many people starving here on earth.

Oh, I'd just send those 0.1% that are accountable for the mess we are in into space. Sounds like well invested money for me.
