Torque can be calculated by multiplying the force (N) applied at 90 ∘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 ∘to the lever arm) applied is 15 Nand it is applied at 2.0 mfrom the pivot point (point of rotation), what is the torque on the lever?

Question

Torque can be calculated by multiplying the force (
N
) applied at
90

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

to the lever arm) applied is
15 N
and it is applied at
2.0 m
from the pivot point (point of rotation), what is the torque on the lever?
