1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I'm just trying to understand why the force from net torque isn't included in net force when considering equilibrium: Why isn't the force from torque part of the net forces acting on a body? 2. Relevant equations if net force = 0 and net torque = 0 then the body is in equilibrium; net force = ma, torque = Frsin@, where @ is theta 3. The attempt at a solution It seems like the force required for torque should be part of the net forces acting on the body.
