1 To loosen a nut on an engine a torque of 48N m is required. What is the minimum force with which this
can be achieved if the length of the spanner (wrench) used is 23 cm? 2 a Determine the torque provided by the couple shown in Figure 14.4 if the force is 42 N, r = 8.3 cm and
the angle 9 is 53°.
b Sketch a graph to show how the torque varies when the object moves from horizontal to vertical
(assume that the directions of the forces do not change). 3 Consider Figure 14.4. Does the magnitude of the torque provided by the couple depend on the position of
the axis of rotation? Explain your answer.
