Find all cw and ccw torques. I don't know how to post the picture, but I was absent from my physics class today for AMC so I missed out. First problem: A horizontal massless rod of length 6 meters is pivoted about its center. There is a 2kg point mass on each end of the rod.

2. Relevant equations

torque = Fd

3. The attempt at a solution

So I looked at the textbook, but they only provide examples with cylinders. So I just need one example for this and I think I can pretty much do the rest. Do I calculate the Force for each one? or do I use the moment of Inertia?
