1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Halle and Susan, each of mass 40 kg are sitting at opposite ends of a playground seesaw. The seesaw is stationary in the horizontal position and is 4.50 m long. Susan decides to jump off. Calculate the size of the unbalanced torque that now acts on the seesaw. 2. Relevant equations torque= F * r (perpendicular distance?) F=ma 3. The attempt at a solution I'm not sure how to find the perpendicular distance from the line of action of the force to the axis of rotation. I think F would be 40*9.8=392 N but I don't know how to find the "r" value.
