Best Answer

force times length is the dimension for Work or Energy or Torque. Some examples are Newton meters (equivalent to Joules), inch pounds, foot pounds. The pounds are pounds force, not pounds mass.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Can a small force ever exert a greater torque than a larger force. Explain?

yes; torque is force times perpendicular distance which is the arm length; if you increase the length you increase the torque so a small force at long length can be greater torque than big force at a smaller length

What are the units used to describe a force?

(mass) times (length) divided by (distance)2 or (mass) times (acceleration)

What are the dimensions of the force f knowing that f is equal to the mass m times the acceleration a?

[ force ] = [ mass ] [ acceleration ] = [ mass ] [ length/time2 ] = [ mass-length-time-2 ]

Is 150 pound-feet of torque much different from 100 pound-feet?

for a given lever length the force is (150 / 100) times greater torque = force (pounds) * lever length (feet)

Is length squared the same as length times height?

No! Length squared will be the length times the length again. Length times height is going to find the area so it will not be the same.

What is lever arm ratio?

Divide the length of the force arm by the length of the resistance arm.

Does gravitaional force is equal to kinetic energy?

No, force and energy are not the same dimension to start with. Gravitational force on an object is equal to mass*(gravitational acceleration) {dimensions Mass*Length/Time²}Kinetic energy is (1/2)*mass*(velocity)² {dimensions Mass*Length²/Time²}. If you look at these, Force, multiplied by length has the same dimension as Energy. And in fact you have other forms of energy:Work is Force times distance;Potential energy = mass*(gravitational accel)*height = (Force due to gravity)*(height), height is a distance or length.
