# Figure 7.5 shows a lamina in x-y plane. Two axes z and z′ pass perpendicular to its plane. A force F acts in the plane of lamina at point P as shown. Which of the following are true? (The point P is closer to z′-axis than the z-axis.)A. Torque τ caused by F about z axis is along -.B. Torque τ′ caused by F about z′ axis is along -.C. Torque τ caused by F about z axis is greater in magnitude than that about z axis.D. Total torque is given be τ = τ + τ′.

As we know that

And direction of z is perpendicular to plane of r and F by right hand thumb rule.

a) Torque caused by force F about z-axis is in +k direction by right hand thumb rule.

b) Similarly Torque caused by force F about z’-axis is in –k direction.

c) r>r’ and θ>θ’

So, rFsinθ > r’Fsinθ’

Hence

d) There is no sense in adding torques about 2 different axes.
