For the objects shown below sketch the object in the space provided after rotating it about the axis by the indicated amount.
the magnitudes of the three forces applied to the eye are T1 = 110 lb, T2 = 40 lg and T3 = 150 lb. Replace these forces with a single equivalent force R. Show result in a sketch of the eye
torque (or moment) is defined as a force acting perpendicular to a moment arm about a moment center and is defined as: Torque = Force x Distance. A technician is required to apply a torque of 360 lb.·in. (pound·inch) to a series of bolts in an assembly. As part of the technical report that needs to accompany the assembly, you must convert this value to lb.·ft. (pound·foot) and N·m. (Netwon·meter).
