    Hi friends and Sir's ,

    I am stumbled upon a problem and unable to solve it , can any one tell me what will be the torque at A and how you did that?

    here is my problem :

    Please describe the problem completely (a diagram is not enough--explain the problem) and, most importantly, show your solution so far and where you are stuck.

    I already told my question that i need to find the torque about point A but i am having problem with the torque 20 nm that how to or resolve that torque about A .
    Btw the distance btw 4m line and point a is also 4 m. My semster exams are on 7 may. So please just tell me how to solve it.
    Thanksss

    btw

    I assume that the 20 Nm is an external torque. You can view it as acting on the body as a whole.

    Can you be little more descriptive this doesn't clears my concept at all! means can you tell me
    with easy language that how to solve if torque is given on other point (x,y) and some forces then how to find torque about a point (x1,y1) (means on another coordinate) , thanks again
