Nolan Bradshaw Physics 107 Physics Paper #2 November 27, 2010 Torque While being in physics 107 we have conducted multiple experiments concerning the principles of physics and testing the laws behind physics to see how they can be applied to real life applications. In the past few weeks I have tested many of the laws ranging from rotational and angular momentum, work and energy and fluid mechanics all the way up to the laws of torque. Torque is a very interesting subject and it is what I am most interested in. In physics one of the most powerful concepts of physics is the laws revolving around torque. Torque is the tendency of a force to cause an object on which it acts to rotate about a fixed axis. There are three factors that have an effect on the size of a torque. First is the degree of the force or magnitude. This can be explained by how hard you may push an object, the harder the push the faster it will rotate. Second is the distance from the fixed axis to the point where the force is applied. The Third is the angle between the fixed axis and the
