A very useful special case, often given as the definition of torque in fields other than physics, is as follows:
<!--:''τ'' = moment arm &times; force-->
:<math>\boldsymbol{\tau} = (\textrm{moment\ arm}) \times \textrm{force}</math>
The construction of the "moment arm" is shown in the figure below, along with the vectors '''r''' and '''F''' mentioned above. The problem with this definition is that it does not give the direction of the torque but only the magnitude, and hence it is difficult to use in three-dimensional cases. If the force is perpendicular to the displacement vector '''r''', the moment arm will be equal to the distance to the centre, and torque will be a maximum for the given force. The equation for the magnitude of a torque arising from a perpendicular force:
<!--:''τ'' = distance to centre &times; force-->
:<math>\boldsymbol{T} = (\textrm{distance\ to\ center}) \times \textrm{force}</math>
