Net torque:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{N}}}^{\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{e}\mathbf{\right)}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{d}\mathbf{L}}{\mathbf{d}\mathbf{t}}}$

$\begin{array}{rcl}\frac{\mathbf{dL}}{\mathbf{dt}}& \mathbf{=}& \frac{\mathbf{d}}{\mathbf{d}\mathbf{t}}\mathbf{r}{\mathbf{F}}^{\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{e}\mathbf{\right)}}\\ & \mathbf{=}& \frac{\mathbf{d}}{\mathbf{dt}}\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{r}\mathbf{×}\mathbf{p}\mathbf{\right)}\mathbf{=}\frac{\mathbf{d}}{\mathbf{dt}}\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{r}\mathbf{×}\mathbf{mv}\mathbf{\right)}\\ & \mathbf{=}& \mathbf{m}\frac{\mathbf{d}}{\mathbf{dt}}\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{r}\mathbf{×}\mathbf{v}\mathbf{\right)}\\ & \mathbf{=}& \mathbf{m}\frac{\mathbf{d}}{\mathbf{dt}}\mathbf{\left(}\mathbf{r}\mathbf{×}\mathbf{r\omega }\mathbf{\right)}\end{array}$
