A circular disk has two masses acting on it, m1=10g, m2=50g. The forces caused by these masses are 4.5cm (F1) and 6.8cm (F2) away from the axis of rotation (center). The angles are 130 degrees (F1, and on outer side away from center) and 98 degrees (F2, also on outer edge away from center). Calculate F1 and F2. Which way will the disk rotate?

2. Relevant equations

T=rFsin(phi)

3. The attempt at a solution

I wasn't even really sure where to start with this one. Don't know if I'm missing some info or what.
