Torque = R x F
The Attempt at a Solution
I'm only confused because we've only found the torque using the force and position vectors were given. When it says find the torque acting on the pebble about the origin and a point with coordinates (x, y, z) I'm not quite sure what to do to accomadate for this. I'm just fine with using the cross product, so can anyone help clarify what parts a and b are asking for? I'm pretty sure that part a is just telling me to find the torque using the vectors given without any changes. In part b I think that's telling me to use the new coordinates as the position vector. Can someone clarify this?
