  • Newton meters can be used to measure work or energy,


One newton metre is the distance travelled in the direction of applied force, (ie not the perpendicular distance from a fulcrum which is the NM when used to express torque)


The Newton metres is an SI unit, althought its use as a measure of work or energy is discouraged (in favour of the Joule) to avoid confusing it with the Newton Metre measure of torque
