Calculate the torque (magnitude and direction) about the front support post (B) of a diving board , exerted by a 60 kg person 3.0 m from that post. See picture.
τ = Fr
The Attempt at a Solution
τ clockwise = τ counterclockwise
(60 kg)(9.8 m/s^2)(4.0 m) = τ counterclockwise
I used "A" as the origin. Did I approach this incorrectly?
