2. Relevant equations

T=F*r

F*X=Ia

I=ML^{2}/3

3. The attempt at a solution

I was able to do part A easily enough, but I'm not quite sure where to even start with part B. I know that the force on the pivot point would be F_{0}if X was .5L, ie the center of mass. However, I am unable to come up with the equation asked for. Thanks for any help!
