1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A rod can pivot at one end and is free to rotate without friction about a vertical axis. A force F is applied at the other end, at an angle theta to the rod. If F were to be applied perpendicular to the rod, at what distance d from the axis of rotation should it be applied in order to produce the same torque t? 2. Relevant equations t = rF 3. The attempt at a solution My answer: d = Lsin(theta). Is that correct or am I missing something?
