Step 1
Bergman asks to derive a number of identities from the defining identities for W, and these identities help to show that the universe of bf{F}W(x, y) is
{x, y, (xy), (yx)}.
More precisely, Bergmans

Step 1
To save typing, I'll write xy and xy and as =.
Bergman gives in part (a) a list of identities which follow from the defining identities of V These identities are very helpful in solving part (b)!
1) (xy)(zw)=(xz)(yw)
2) x(yz)=(xy)(xz)
3) (yz)x=(yx)(zx)
4) y(xy)=(yx)y
5) (yx)x=xy
For completeness, I'll give proofs of these five identities inside the spoiler blocks.
1) (xy)(zw)=((zw)y)x=((yw)z)x=(xz)(yw)
2) x(yz)=(×)(yz)=(xy)(xz)
3) (yz)x=(yz)(×)=(yx)(zx)
4) y(xy)=(yx)(yy)=(yx)y
5) (yx)x=(×)y=xy
Ok, now we add the additional defining identity of W:6. y(xy)=x. Note that in conjunction with identity 4 above, we also have 7. (yx)y=x
Our task is to understand FW(a, b), the free algebra in W on two generators a and b. I'm using a and b for the generators so as not to be confused with the variables x and y used in the identities above. Let's try to find all its elements.
Recall that every element of the free algebra FW(a, b) is an equivalence class of terms in the generators a and b. The terms can be built up in levels, where the terms at Level 0 are the generators and the terms at Level (n+1) are the generators and the products of two terms at Level (n).
Level 0: a, b
Level 1: a, b, aa, ab, ba, and bb.
Note that we can eliminate aa and bb since they are redundant: aa=a and =b
Now it turns out that any term at Level 2 (any product of a, b, ab, and ba) can be shown to be equivalent to a term at Level 1, using the identities above. They multiply according to the following Cayley table:
ababbaaaabbabbbabaababbbaababaababba
I've hidden the derivations in the spoiler blocks below.
a(ab)=a((aa)b)=a((ba)a)=ba by 6. Similarly, b(ba)=ab.
b(ab)=a by 6. Similarly, a(ba)=b.
(ab)a=b by 7. Similarly,

A pair of forces with equal magnitudes, opposite directions,and different lines of action is called a "couple". When acouple acts on a rigid object, the couple produces a torque thatdoes not depend on the location of the axis. The drawing shows acouple acting on a tire wrench, each force being perpendicular tothe wrench. Determine an expression for the torque produced by thecouple when the axis is perpendicular to the tired and passesthrough (a) point A, (b) point B, and (c) point C. Express youranswers in terms of the magnitude F of the force and the length Lof the wrench
