To tighten a bolt, you push with a force of 90 N at the end of a wrench handle that is 0.45 m from the axis of the bolt.
(a) What torque are you exerting?
Enter a number.
1 N·m
(b) If you move your hand inward to be only 0.15 m from the bolt, what force do you have to exert to achieve the same torque?
Enter a number.
2 N
(c) Do your answers depend on the direction of your push relative to the direction of the wrench handle? (Why or why not?)
