You are asked to find the torque.
You are given the force and lever arm.
Use: = r F.
4. Solve: = (-50 N)(0.3 m) = -15 N⋅m
Calculating a torque
A force of 50 newtons is applied to a wrench that is 30 centimeters long. Calculate the torque if the force is applied perpendicular to the wrench so the lever arm is 30 cm.
