We know that we torque is applied, it cause an angular acceleration in the rotating body similar to what a force does to a body moving on a straight line.
But my question is, Does Torque affect the linear acceleration of the rotating body along with the angular acceleration?
We know from the formula that
Angular Acceleration = Perpendicular dist. × Linear Acceleration
Torque = Perpendicular Distance × Force
So can it be said that the body gets a linear acceleration as well?
(Consider gravity free situation, single force (i.e only that force which causes torque) and no friction.)
