To Mike Whittle:

One of the advantages of the SI system of units is that the units of

measurement can usually be determined from the definition of the variable.

In the case of torque, the definition is the product of force and moment

arm (a distance) and hence the unit of measurement is the product of the

unit for force (N) and the unit for distance (m), hence N.m.
