### Quiz zum Vortrag

1. The distance between the center of rotation and the point which the force is applied
2. The perpendicular distance between the center of rotation and the line of force
3. The distance from the center of mass of the object being rotated to the center of rotation
4. The length of the object being rotated
5. The distance from the center of rotation to the line perpendicular to the line of force
1. When the angle between the force line and the line connecting the pivot point to the point which the force is applied is 90 degrees
2. When the angle between the force line and the line connecting the pivot point to the point which the force is applied is 0 degrees
3. When the angle between the force line and the line connecting the pivot point to the point which the force is applied is 45 degrees
4. Since torque only depends on the distance r and force magnitude F it is always the maximum
5. When the force is applied parallel to the line connecting the pivot point to the point which the force is applied
1. The lever arm is 1 meter
2. The lever arm is 2 meters
3. The lever arm is 0.5 meters
4. The lever arm is 1.5 meters
5. The lever arm is √3 meters
1. This increases the distance r between the pivot point and where force is applied to the door, increasing the torque
2. This minimizes the distance r between the pivot point and where force is applied to the door, increasing the torque
3. The lever arm and force can then be parallel, providing the most torque
4. The angle between the distance and force is then perpendicular, maximizing the torque
5. Since after pulling the doorknob it would be easier to pass through the door if the doorknob is placed farther away from the pivot point
