Situations where torque does no work

  1. Feb 23, 2013 #1
    I would like to know all the different situations where torque does no work. So far I only know that torque can do no work when it is balanced. Is there any other ways torque can do zero work?

    You should be able to work that out from the definition of work and the definition of torque...
