The task is to reduce the two forces into a single net force and then find the equation of its line of action. I chose to find the net force and momentum with respect to the origin. The magnitude of ...
I need to mathematically derive the direction of torque in a 2D plane(clockwise/anticlockwise), for a physics engine. I have torque calculated, but it is always positive, so rotation always is in the ...
I am having trouble using the right hand rule properly and often find myself putting my hand in awkward orientations. I know you point your hand in the direction of $r$ and then point your fingers in ...
I was doing calculations with torque and then I came across something very confusing: I understand that the magnitude of the torque is given by product of the displacement(from the center of ...
Hey so I've just learned about angular velocity and momentum and how torque changes it. Looking at a wheel spinning around an axis, with one end being held up by a rope, what causes the wheel to ...
