A particle is located at the vector position r = (i + 3 j) m, and the force acting on it is F = (5 i + 6 j) N.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(a) What is the torque about the origin?

(b) What is the torque about the point having coordinates (0, 4) m?

when you are given an i + j, do you assume that it starts at the origin?

then to you add 4 to the j vector since you are changing the point to (0,4)?
