1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Determine the net torque on the 4.5-m-long uniform beam shown in the figure: http://session.masteringphysics.com/problemAsset/1057865/3/GIANCOLI.ch10.p030.jpg" [Broken] A) Calculate about point C, the center of mass (CM) B)Calculate about point P at one end. 2. Relevant equations [itex]\tau=F*\theta[/itex] 3. The attempt at a solution In this case I have the answers for the values with the same figure, so I know the summation of forces along this pole must be equal to 8.5 N. From there I multiply the length of my bar to get 38 Nm, which is correct. However, I don't know how to get this from the figure. From there, I have no idea how to get the torque around point p.
