**Read introduction page 226**• If F is the force acting on an object, and r is position vector from a chosen point O to the point of application of the force, with F perpendicular to r. The magnitude of the TORQUE σ exerted by the force F is: τ = r F SI unit : Newton-meter (Nm)**When an applied force causes an object to rotate clockwise,**the torque is positive • When the forces causes an objet to rotate counterclockwise, the torque of the object is negative • When two or more torques act on an object at rest the torques are added • The rate of rotation of an object doesn’t change, unless the object is acted on by a torque**The magnitude of the torque τ exerted by the force F is:**τ = F r sinθ Where r- F- θ- The value of τdepends on the chosen axis of rotation**The direction of σ is given by the right-hand-rule**• An object in mechanical equilibrium must satisfy: 1. The net external forces must be zero: ΣF = 0 2. The net external torque must be zero: Στ = 0**We wish to locate the point of application of the single**force of magnitude w=Fg where the effect on the rotation of the object is the same as that of the individual particles – center of gravity (m1g+m2g+..mng)xcg= m1gx1+m2gx2+…mn g xn xcg=Σmixi / Σmi ycg=Σmiyi / Σmi zcg=Σmizi / Σmi**Problem solving strategy for objects in equilibrium**• Diagram system • Draw the free body diagram • Apply Στ = 0, the second condition of equilibrium • Apply ΣF = 0 (on x axis and y axis) • Solve the system of ecuation**Relationship between torque and angular acceleration:**Ft = mat.
