Force F1 is 12.0 N, F2 is 21.0 N, F3 is 12.0 N, F4 is 16.0 N, and F5 is 19.0 N. *Pciture of diagram attached* I need help! Attached Thumbnails

You will use d2 as the distance to find the torque due to F2. Can you follow the logic? And the picture you gave is a bit off I think. F3 should be directly under O but it's slightly more to the left. __________________ Jerry (Got my results!) It is easier to protect your feet with slippers than to cover the earth with carpet. No one can go back and change a bad beginning; but anyone can start now and create a successful ending. If a problem can be solved, no need to worry about it. If it cannot be solved what is the use of worrying?
