A wheel of diameter 34.0 cm is constrained to rotate in the xy plane, about the z axis, which passes through its center. A force vector F = (-30.0 i-hat + 39.6 j-hat) N acts at a point on the edge of the wheel that lies exactly on the x axis at a particular instant. What is the torque about the rotation axis at this instant?

2. Relevant equations

Torque=R*F

3. The attempt at a solution

Tx= 0

Ty= 0

Tz= 6.732
