Lesson Worksheet: The Vector Product of Two Vectors Physics
In this worksheet, we will practice calculating the vector product of two vectors using both the components of the vectors and the magnitudes of the two vectors and the angle between them.
The diagram shows a rod that can rotate around point P. A force is applied to the end of the rod. Each of the squares of the grid has a side length equal to 1 m and 1 N. The torque on the rod is equal to the vector product of and . Calculate the magnitude of the torque on the rod.
The diagram shows a rod with a length of 1.5 m that can rotate around point P. A force with a magnitude of 12 N is applied to the end of the rod. What is the magnitude of the torque applied to the rod?
