Unless r and F are perpendicular, there are always two angles between their directions that give the same torque for given magnitudes of r and F. Explain why?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Perhaps I cannot visualize the question, but I cannot see how this can be. As the force moves to the perpendicular position the torque increases. Am I missing something?
