Question:

# Torque involves a perpendicular force applied to a lever arm that moves around a center of rotation. Increasing the length of the lever arm will do which of the following?

A increase torque
explanation

Torque measures force applied during rotation: τ = rF. Torque (τ, the Greek letter tau) = the radius of the lever arm (r) multiplied by the force (F) applied. Radius is measured from the center of rotation or fulcrum to the point at which the perpendicular force is being applied. The resulting unit for torque is newton-meter (N-m) or foot-pound (ft-lb).

Took between 15-60 minutes every day for the past month and a half to go through the practice tests and questions and I believe this app was extremely helpful and worth it. Got an 89 on the ASVAB today!

it's really helpful, even if you get questions wrong; you can always go back to correctly answer the question/s you got wrong, and it truly helps on stimulating your mind to think properly, and thoroughly.
