1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 1.8-kg particle moves in a circle of radius 3.4 m. As you look down on the plane of its orbit, the particle is initially moving clockwise. If we call the clockwise direction positive, the particle‘s angular momentum relative to the center of the circle varies with time according to L(t)=10(N m s)-(4 N m)t (a) Find the magnitude and direction of the torque acting on the particle. 2. Relevant equations T net ext z= dL sys Z/dt 3. The attempt at a solution Using this equation I would assume that all that is needed to find the net ext torque would be to take the derivative of L(t), and that is =-4N m s. My book gets an answer of -4.9 N m s.
