Physics 1D03 - Lectur 2 An unbalanced force applied to an object causes it to move (accelerate). F a Even with no net force, the object is not necessarily in equilibrium. A net torque will cause it to rotate. F -F Torque is what causes rotation
Physics 1D03 - Lectur 3 Quiz A weight W is placed at one end of a light plank. What weight should be placed at the other end so that the plank will balance on a pivot placed 1/3 of the way along the plank? a) 3W b) 2W c) W d) ½ W e) 1/3 W L/3 2L/3 W ?

Physics 1D03 - Lectur 4 R F τ Each force produces a torque, τ (“tau”), which tends to rotate the plank about the pivot. Torque is proportional to the force and to the distance from the pivot: torque = (length of “lever”) x (force) (when the force is perpendicular to the “lever” – more complicated otherwise) rF = τ
Physics 1D03 - Lectur 5 A force directed toward the axis of rotation produces no torque.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
