Here is the answer for the question - **As shown in the figure, a given force is applied to a rod in several different ways. In which case is the torque about the pivot P due to this force the greatest?**. You'll find the correct answer below

### As shown in the figure, a given force is applied to a rod in several different ways. In which case is the torque about the pivot P due to this force the greatest? The figure shows a force F applied to the horizontal rod in five different ways labeled from 1 to 5. In case 1 vertical force F is applied to the right end of the rod and is directed upward. In case 2 vertical force F is applied to the midpoint of the rod and is directed upward. In case 3 force F is applied to the right end of the rod and is directed upward and to the right. In case 4 force F is applied to the right end of the rod and is directed downward and to the right. In case 5 force F is applied to the right end of the rod and is directed horizontally to the left. 1 2 3 4 5

**The Correct Answer is**

**1**
