Equivalent expressions?

  1. Sep 13, 2008 #1
    Would it be possible for a symmetric axial vector torque to be equivalent to the shear stress of two uniform rectilinear forces? as they seem to be non-related, but it works out that they should be. :grumpy:

    Hi rae20! Welcome to PF! :smile:

    Any torque is equal to a pair of equal and opposite forces that aren't lined-up. :wink:
