1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Make the following into a web address; it wouldn't let me post one. img161.imageshack.us/img161/3728/physicspv5.pngimg161.imageshack.us/img161/3728/physicspv5.b3825b8665.jpg[/url] What is the net torque on this object? 2. Relevant equations torque=(radius)(force)(sin( [tex]\theta[/tex])) 3. The attempt at a solution I know that the answer is found by doing the following: .95(10N)-.22m(50N)-1.5m(3.0N)(sin40) but I don't understand why. Like, I get that it's plugging each section into the above equation, but I don't get why the values should be subtracted. Thank you!
