Physics Ch 2 Q 2 Practice Passage

Post by rybo1525 » Sat Jun 29, 2019 11:48 pm

Hello, I am having trouble with Q 2 on page 52-53. I understand I need to find the overall torque clockwise. From there I know what the counter clockwise torque is. I'm unsure how to get the final answer. The explanation says counterclockwise torque is 10=T(.25)->T=10/0.25->40 N m (shouldn't this then be 40 N as we are rearranging the Torque formula to get the Force?)

Thanks for the question!

There are actually a few posts on this topic. Here's a link to one that also includes another link to an older post: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=1703&p=4199&hilit= ... 2c1c#p4199

You may be able to find more by searching "torque."

Good luck with your prep!
