Question #160398

A nut needs to be tightened with a socket and a tommy bar to a torque of 50kg.m - if a force of 60kg is available, how long must the tommy bar be?

Expert's answer

We know that torgue = forceÃ—length

T=FÃ—L

Given torque T = 50 kg m, force F = 60 kg,

Subsstitute the values in the equation,

50= 60Ã—L

L = 0.8334m.

The length of the tommy bar is L=0.8334m.
