-In the same way as a force causes linear acceleration,​ $\vec{F}=m\vec{a}$,​ there must be an analogous quantity and equation related to angular acceleration. From experience, for example when we use a wrench we can expect that the angular equivalent of Force, which is called [[wp>​Torque|Torque]],​ will depend on the amount of Force applied, the distance at which it is applied and the direction of its application.+In the same way as a force causes linear acceleration,​ $\vec{F}=m\vec{a}$,​ there must be an analogous quantity and equation related to angular acceleration.
