Torque and the vector product Thus far: Torque Φ = sin F r τ Torque is the vector product between the force vector F and vector r F r × = τ ισ περπενδιχυλαρ το ρ ανδ Φ τ ηασ μαγ νιτυδε τ = ρ •Φ•σινΦ
Torque and the vector product Definition of vector product: B A C × = - The vector product of vectors A and B is the vector C . - C is perpendicular to A and B - The magnitude of is C = A·B·sin φ φ
