336 newtons is about 76 pounds of force.
A force of one newton will accelerate a mass of one kilogram at the rate of one meter per second per second.
336 newton-meters is about 250 foot-pounds of force.
Torque, the tendency of a force to cause a rotation, is the product of the force and the distance from the centre of rotation to the point where the force is applied. Torque has the same units as work or energy, but it is a different physical concept. To stress the difference, scientists report torque in newton meters rather than in joules.
