- Homework Statement
- Find the net torque of the square in terms of F and d

- Relevant Equations
- T=r×F=rFsin(θ)

So I started by just figuring out what forces are going to have torque. I know the one heading straight down from the pivot won’t have any and the one going at an angle from the pivot won’t be included in the net torque since it’s at the pivot. The rest of the forces have torque and they are both clockwise (going the same direction). I can get the torque for the F on the bottom left (it’s just Fd), but I can’t figure out how to find the torque for the 3F since it’s starting point isn’t as the corner. How would I find that? And how would I represent it in my formula to find net torque?
