1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
The problem is as seen in the attachment.
2. Relevant equations
T(torque) = (N)(I)(A)(B)(Sin(theta))
3. The attempt at a solution
For this question I used the above formula to find the magnitude of the torque, but what I am not sure about is which orientation would produce the "maximum torque" that it is asking about.
Could someone please tell me which orientation would give a "maximum torque" and why?
By the way, I calculated the magnitude of the torque to be 18 Newton*meters.
