# Finding the magnitude of Torque

## 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.

## Homework Equations

t=rFsinθ=r$\bot$F=rF$\bot$

## 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.
