Yes, it's "brake".

Torque is a rotational force. Kind of a strange concept, but I usually think of it like this....if you twist off a bottle cap, you apply torque. If you lift something, or pull something (straight line force) you are using power (hp).

Torque in a car can be found by this equation.....
(hp * 5200)/RPM

I think that's it...don't remember exactly.
