    Force times distance ..... right?

    yes ,but i find them hard when we also have cos37 and sin37!

    thats part of vectors then, and not really torque ... im assuming is there a more specific problem that we can relate these to?

    This example is solved in my book,but i cant understand the procedure! -The force applied to a 0.2m long spanner is 15N.Find the torque produced by this force.(take cos37=0.8 and sin37=0.6)

    we want to find the part of the force that is perpendicular to the spanner

    the amount of force applied at a right angle to the spanner is therefore: 15 sin(37) and the distance is already given as : .2m you said?

    so your question is not about torque ... but rather how to find the required adjustment of the force.

    youre welcome; and yes, torque is the new material that they are adding to the old material from previous sections :) good luck

    \[Torque = \overrightarrow{F} \times \overrightarrow{r} \times Sin \Theta \]
