## Homework Statement

find the net torque on the wheel about the axle through O, taking a = 7.00cm and b = 20.00cm. Assume the positive direction is counterclockwise

## Homework Equations

torque = force x distance

torque = force x (radius x sin(phi))

## The Attempt at a Solution

10.0 x .2m = -2 (because it's moving clockwise)

9.00 x .2m = -1.8

.07 x 12 x sin(30) = .42

net torque = -3.38 (this is off by 10%-100%)
