## This is the Best Answer for what is the magnitude of net torque about the axle? Express your answer to two sign?

0.2Nm

Clockwise

r=0.02 m

Torque = r*30-r*20 ( taking inside the plane +ve direction)

Thus you get the answer 0.2 which is positive hence net torque in clock wise direction.

Applying right hand thumb rule.

It should be T=r*20-r*30

i think this is the correct answer for what is the magnitude of net torque about the axle? Express your answer to two sign?
