1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data If two forces of equal magnitude act on an object that is hinged at a pivot, the force acting farther from the pivot must produce the greater torque about the pivot. a. False b. unable to decide without knowing shape of object c. True 2. Relevant equations T=rxF 3. The attempt at a solution My logic told me that a greater distance r from the point of rotation equals a greater torque. The above equation makes this obvious. So I selected true and got marked incorrect, the answer is false. I feel that I was right or the question is misleading at best. Anyone care to weigh in? thanks.
