Homework Statement
A force F = 75.0 N is applied to a box with dimensions y = 2.51 m, x = 1.62 m. The force is applied at an angle θ with respect to the horizontal. For θ = 35.0°, calculate the magnitude of the torque produced by F about the point O.

t=rFsinθ=r[itex]\bot[/itex]F=rF[itex]\bot[/itex]
The Attempt at a Solution
For the other questions like this i just used t=rF when the angles were 0 and 90deg.
but now that it is at a 35deg angle the same formula doesnt work.
HELP PLEASE?
