There are 2 lessons in this physics tutorial covering Torque. The tutorial starts with an introduction to Torque and is then followed with a list of the separate lessons, the tutorial is designed to be read in order but you can skip to a specific lesson or return to recover a specific physics lesson as required to build your physics knowledge of Torque. you can access all the lessons from this tutorial below.
In this Physics tutorial, you will learn:
In tutorial "Moment of Force. Conditions of Equilibrium", we discussed about moment of force or as it is otherwise known, the turning effect of force. However, the focus in that tutorial was setting up the equilibrium of a system, i.e. when the total clockwise moment is numerically equal to its opposite, i.e. the total anticlockwise moment of force.
In this tutorial we will focus on another aspect of turning effect, i.e. when forces "help" each other to make the turning effect easier. Obviosly, they must act in the same direction of rotation.
Please select a specific "Torque" lesson from the table below, review the video tutorial, print the revision notes or use the practice question to improve your knowledge of this physics topic.
