Bending and Torque Activities

Bending and Torque Activities: 

Bending is a force which causes a material to deform around a central axis. Bending can also cause tension and compression, so all of these forces are related. Torque can be thought of as a twist to an object. It causes a material to rotate around an axis or pivot.
