## Homework Statement

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.

## Homework Equations

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?
