Calculate the net torque about point O for the two forces applied as in the figure View Figure . The rod and both forces are in the plane of the page. Take positive torques to be counterclockwise. A image is here to show the problem What i did 12Nsin(30)*(2m)-(8N*3m) or if you like this better F2sin(theta)*d-(F1*d) however this isnt working should i not be neglecting the y component of F2 or do i have the angle wrong....i am confused any help is appreciated. it appears my image is taking forever to get approval so i will try and explain the problem. there is a rod where the axis of rotation is on the left end of it 2 meters from this axis is a force going up and to the left, at a 30 degree angle. with a magnitude of 12N (F2) Another force is a total of 5 meters from the point of rotation and is vertical with a magnitude of 8N (F1) nevermind i turned out to be right...i just made a dumb error.
