O B J E C T I V E The objective of this lab is to determine the tension on the supporting cord and a strut by taking torques about the pivot point of the strut. This will help to gain a better understanding of torque and the condition for rotational equilibrium. 2. T H E O R E T I C A L BACKG R O U N D By definition torque is a cross product of distance r and applied force F . magnitude of torque t is: t = rsin When a body is in rotational equilibrium, the sum of all the torques which is net torque acting on the body about any point, O, must be zero, that is: T net = t = 0 3.
