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).

3. A 10-pound weight is lying on a sit-up bench at the gym. If the bench is inclined at an angle of , there are three forces acting on the weight. N is called the normal force and it acts in the direction perpendicular to the bench. F is the force due to friction that holds the weight on the bench. If the weight does not move, then the sum of these three forces is 0.
