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 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
The exerted torque is 23.1 Nm
