What is counter torque?
I know there is torque..... but is there a reverse torque? NO, only torque in the opposite direction. So, what then is counter torque in this picture. (not a good term in my opinion) We must watch our terminology.

Agreed, but torque and conter torque can only exist together and not independent of each other. And for sure I didn't use the term "reverse torque." Check your mail dude, I sent you something for your archives.Originally posted by Goldendragon7
Where, what physics book, page ?
I hear what you are saying..... torque IS possible in two different directions at the same time but they still are torque only in different directions not reverse torque.
For that instance where you have torque working simultaneously but in opposite directions..... I guess you could call that counter torque..... but that is only defining that torque is working together but in opposite directions the way I see it.
