Problem 2PE

When tightening a bolt, you push perpendicularly on a wrench with a force of 165 N at a distance of 0.140 m from the center of the bolt. (a) How much torque are you exerting in newton × meters (relative to the center of the bolt)? (b) Convert this torque to footpounds.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1of 3

First we have to find the torque and express the result in foot pounds.

Torque is rotating effect of force.it is defined as the product of force and distance.

Step 2 of 3</p>

The torque is,  is the force

d is the distance  or kgm/s2

The exerted torque is 23.1 Nm

Step 3 of 3
