The amazing thing about Torque

Posted on: January 29, 2009

As per wiki, Torque is the tendency of a force vector to rotate an object about some axis (or fulcrum or pivot). Just as a force is a push or a pull, a torque can be thought of as a twist. Torque is also called moment or moment of force.

 “Twist” here is a very powerful word, imagine you are not moving, because you are constrained, but you still see the different perspectives; just being where you are.

 

Torque is a measure of how much force acting on an object causes that object to rotate. In terms of the physical equation it says,” The closer you are to the hinges (i.e. the smaller ‘r’ is), the harder it is to push”

 

The thing about torque

The thing about torque

 

 

 

 

 

 

How this translates to your efforts and the DIP  is, that the first step is always easy, what is difficult is the next and the next and the last mile. Probably, that is why in this world of abundance there is scare scarcity. Confused?


Scarcity is something that is rare, but rare may not always bee remarkable. Nevertheless what is abundant is never remarkable. How can it be?

Do you stop down the road and say “hey that’s a cow”. You don’t. Because it is abundant (far more) ,but if it were a purple cow, you stop by and say, hey that’s a purple cow!

 

Now, Imagine if you could create something that goes beyond function, is beautiful and emotionally engaging, all this just being where you are.

This is the amazing thing about a Tribe, about social networking, and entrepreneurship.

Be there, do that !

Trust is like the air we breathe. When it’s present, nobody really notices. But when it’s absent everybody notices

That was a wonderful post Ekta.I would put here one more amazing concept of physics i.e. inertia,will explain the context as i follow.I somehow dont agree with you when you say,first step is always easy.This may be correct in many cases, but i feel first step is rather difficult to take and once we get the momentum the inertia follows.

Its always the inertia in which an entity moves, to break it i feel is somehow difficult.

cheers,
Saurav
