To tighten a bolt, you push with a force of 72 N at the end of a wrench handle that is 0.26 m from the axis of the bolt.What torque are you exerting?
I GOT THIS PART AS 19N *m unsure of the next two:
If you move your hand inward to be only 0.10 m from the bolt, find the force that you should exert to achieve the same torque.
Do your answers depend on the direction of your push relative to the direction of the wrench handle?

    I answered this already. The forces are assume to be applied perpendicular to the wrench handle.
