## Answer: “The 4.6 kg, uniform, horizontal rod in (Figure 1) is seen from the side. Part A…”

Calculate the Weight of Rod = mg

w = 4.6 * 9.81

w = 45.13 N

Calculate the Centre of gravity of Left side :

CGl = 25/2 = 12.5 from pivot

Calculate the Weight of left section :

Wl = 45.13*25/100 = 45.13*1/4

Wl = 11.28 N

Write the equation for torque on left side.

Torque = Force*Distance

Tl = 11.28*12.5

Tl = 141 N.cm will be anticlockwise

Calculate the Centre of gravity of Right side :

CGr = 75/2 = 37.5 from pivot

Calculate the Weight of right section :

Wr = 45.13 * 75/100 = 45.13*3/4

Wr = 33.85 N

Write the equation for torque on left side.

Torque = Force*Distance

Tr = 33.85 * 37.5

Tr = 1269.28 N.cm will be clockwise

Tnet = Tr – Tl

= 1269.28- 141= 1128.38 N.cm = 11.28 N.m

The positive sign of the net torque indicates the clockwise direction.

## Relevant knowledge

The rotational equivalent to force is called torque. Torque is the ability of a force or object to cause rotational motion about a particular axis of rotation. It is mathematically calculated as the vector product between the position vector and the force vector, i.e.
