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?
