Homework Help: Torque Part 2

  1. Nov 20, 2007 #1
    [SOLVED] Torque Part 2

    Two people are carrying a uniform wooden board that is 3.40 meters long and weighs 145 N.

    If one person applies an upward force equal to 60.0 N at one end, at what point does the other person lift?

    d = _____ meters from the end where the first person lifts

    Total Torque CW = Total Torque CCW

    I'm not even sure if that's the correct equation, no less where to start. Can someone get me started on the right track without giving me the answer?
