Harris and Paul carry a surfboard that is 2.43 m long and weighs 155 N. Paul lifts one end with a force of 85 N.

What part of the board should Harris lift?

m from Paul

2. Relevant equations

T=Fd

3. The attempt at a solution

I just did 155N-85N

=70N

which is the amount Harris exerted,

After getting that force I am unsure of what to use to get the "d" he needed
