Students at Long Beach Middle School recently received a lesson on torque – a twisting force –in Technology class. They then took on their own challenge of looking up the torque specifications for motorcycle handlebar bolts and torqueing the bolts accordingly to 16.5 lb-ft. Other students provided routine maintenance to the classroom furniture by torqueing seat backrest bolts to 20 lb-ft lbs. Way to go!
