a force of 200 N act tangentially on the rim of a wheel 25 in radius . find the torque
The formula for torque is force multiplied by the per perpendicular distance. In this case the force is 200 N and the perpendicular distance is the radius of the rim that is 25. The torque acting on the wheel will be 200*25 that is 5000 N-m.
Torque (T)= Force (F) * Perpendicular Distance (r)
= 200 N* 25 m
= 5000 N-m
