Unformatted text preview: vectors equal zero, that results in the balance exerting no tilt or rotation about the axis. 2) a. yes. If the axis is at the origin point, then theres no torque present. Torque is only found when there is both a force and a vector that is perpendicular to the origin point are present. b. no Conclusion: The experiment teaches me how to accurately measure the forces and torques from unique angles using the force tables. It also shows how the conditions of equilibrium of an object can be met. I see how to calculate the torques of the forces when using various angles. The calculations for the results seemed simple since I got 90 degrees angles each time I connected the vectors....
