when shopping on digi-key or other electronics distributor, I can see the Torque - Holding spec, given in oz-in and mNm.
I understand Nm in a torque context when the force is applied as a lever at a distance from the rotation point (for instance when applying 1 N force on a wrench, 20 cm from the rotational point, would give 0,2Nm).
But what does it mean when we are talking about motor torque? It seems to me that it is like opposite: the motor is applying force at the rotational point, so the distance is always 0.
Does it mean motor specs are always measuring the force the motor is applying 1 meter away from it? I am trying to have a good intuition of what Nm mean when looking at motors, because tutorials online only talk about wrenches or other cases when the force is applied away from the ration point.
Thanks a lot!
