Question

Torque can be calculated by multiplying the force (N) applied at 90 degrees to the lever arm at a distance (m) from the pivot point (point of rotation), the compound SI unit for the torque is N.m. If the force (at 90 degrees to the lever arm) applied is 15 N and it applied at 2.0 m from the pivot point (point of rotation), what is the torque on the lever?

A partially filled one-gallon [gal] pitcher, that has a mass of 0.35 kilograms [kg] when empty, is sitting on a kitchen counter. Assume the total mass of the pitcher and its contents is 2 kilograms [kg]. The pitcher contains a liquid that has a molecular weight of 19.5 grams per mole [(g)/(mol)] and a molarity of 57 moles per liter [(mol)/(L)]. (a) Determine the volume of the liquid in the pitcher in units of liters [L]. (b) Determine the specific gravity of the liquid in the pitcher.

A chemistry graduate student is designing a pressure vessel for an experiment. The vessel will contain gases at pressures up to 70.0 MPa. The student's design calls for an observation port on the side of the vessel (picture). The bolts that hold the cover of this port onto the vessel can safely withstand a force of 2.40 MN. Calculate the maximum safe diameter w of the port. Round your answer to the nearest 0.1cm
