Homework Help: Another torque problem

  1. Jul 17, 2006 #1
    I have another question,

    A 15.0 kg child is sitting on a plyground teeer-totter, 1.50m from the pivot. What force, applied 0.300m on the other side of the pivot, is need to make the cild lift off the ground?

    I got the Force to be 735.8N, is this correct?
