Question
When tightening a bolt, you push perpendicularly on a wrench with a force of 165 N at a distance of 0.140 m from the center of the bolt. (a) How much torque are you exerting in newton × meters (relative to the center of the bolt)? (b) Convert this torque to footpounds.
1. $23.1 \textrm{ N}\cdot\textrm{m}$
2. $17.0 \textrm{ ft}\cdot\textrm{lbs}$

Note: The video incorrectly shows the conversion to $\textrm{ft}\cdot\textrm{lbs}$ by dividing instead of multiplying by 0.7356. The calculator screenshot has been corrected, and the final answer above is correct.
