Answers to odd-numbered Conceptual Questions can be found in the back of the book.
Two forces produce the same torque. Does it follow that they have the same magnitude? Explain.
Solution 1 CQ:
Step 1 of 1:-
Here we need to explain that, whether the two force s will be same if they produce same torque.
The answer is clearly no.
Because, torque is the cross product of the radius vector with the force.
This does not implies that, .
So, it does not follow that the two forces should be same.
