The steering wheel of a car has a radius of 0.18 m, while the steering wheel of a truck has a radius of 0.25 m. The same force is applied in the same direction to each. What is the ratio of the torque produced by this force in the truck to the torque produced in the car

• physics -

(Torque,truck)/(Truck,car)
= F,truck*R,truck/(F,car*R,truck)
= 0.25/0.18 = ___
since the forces are the same.
