## Main Question or Discussion Point

K, so my name is Kris. New to the site. Not a physics major or anything. lol Had a question I was trying to figure out the answer too and now I am lost. It has to do with suspension, applied torque, and how that torque or force is multiplied depending on stationary points in relation to a rotating axle. I have some illistrations I can upload and try to explain what I am thinking.

K so the blue and red circles are stationary points in a system. They are supposed to stop the center axle from rotating while braking or accellerating. The biggest black circle would be the tire. The arrows are showing how the forces are applied to each point under braking (if I did it right).

So My question is, if under acceleration the tires see 2000ft/lbs of torque. How much would each of these mounts see with the two different configurations? Is there a simple formula to find out how the force is multiplied?
