    Gulp - re-read chapter !
    1. right sure, rolling ball
    2. wrong, m r^2 does not change on Moon
    3. wrong true, Moment = I alpha is F = m A
    4. No, false , cross product perpendicular to both
    5. right, vector
    6. wrong, true, hinge works on torque (unless the latch is stuck :)
    7. right
    8. wrong, sum of moments (torques) is zero for equiblibrium (constant angular momentum)
