 Dwit Chagi or back kick is one of the strongest kicks in Taekwondo if used perfectly. It is one of the beat responses you can use against a roundhouse kick from your opponent. 

This is a scientific study that explains why the back kick is strong and can cause much damage to the human body. 
Back Kick (also called Spinning Back Kick, Horse Kick, Donkey Kick, Mule Kick, or dwi chagi) is performed by kicking backward, behind you, like a horse. The striking surface is the bottom of the foot, ideally the heel.

Note that other name of the kick, Spinning Back Kick, as the martial artist may turn his/her body during the kick, may lead to misconception that the leg goes in a spinning motion.  
The torso should lean forward during the kick, to increase the height of the kick. During the kick, the kicking foot should pass close to the standing foot; in other words, don't move the kicking foot outward away from the line of the target and then back in again -- just go straight back.The head should be turned to the side so that you can see what you are kicking.
