INTRO TO PHYSICS
posted by Sandy .
a) A simple pendulum consists of a small object of mass 3.3 kg hanging at the end of a 2.0-m-long light string that is connected to a pivot point.Calculate the magnitude of the torque (due to the force of gravity) about this pivot point when the string makes a 4.5° angle with the vertical. __________N.m
b)Does the torque increase or decrease as the angle increase? Explain.
