Torque is the tendacy of a force to cause rotation, it is the force times the distance from the center of rotation to where the force is applied.
As an example, take the unit pound foot, a unit of torque. If you have a force of 1 pound being applied 2 foot from the fulcrum, then you have:
1 pound * 2 foot = 2 pound foot of torque
