Hello everyone

I have got a cylindrical 6 axis force sensor (so I have the force Fx, Fy,Fz and torque Tx, Ty, Tz). Using these data I don’t know how I can find the point of force application.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I try this

The torque can be defined as the cross product I (Position vector) and F(force)

Tx,y,z=Ix,y,z ^Fx,y,z

So, I have 3 equations

Tx=IyFz-IzFy

Ty=IzFx-IxFz

Tz=IxFy-IyFx

But, when I solve the equation(in order to find Ix, Iy and Iz) , the variables in the equation vanish…

Do you have an idea how find this point.

Really thanks so much
