Torque magnitudes

  1. Jun 15, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Rank the magnitude of the torques in the picture below about the marked pivot point from least to greatest
    (using <, >, =). The force magnitudes are in terms of F.

    a=2F and pointed up b=F and pointed down c=F pointed up and d=2F pointed down to the left with 60 degrees from from the vertical 30 degrees from the line

    _______a________c
    b d
    3. The attempt at a solution
    a believe the answer is b<a=c=d or is d, a&c

    Where exactly is the pivot point? And do you have distances between the forces?
