    Can you please tell me how to do that?

    Have you not yet learned about how to do balances of moments on rigid bodies?

    This looks very much like a homework question? If so you should really post it in the homework section where you will find a template.

    Definitely looks like homework that should be re-posted in Introductory Physics Homework. Thread closed.
