San Francisco a very simple technique is used to turn around a cable car when it reaches the end of its route. The car rolls onto a turntable, which can rotate about a vertical axis through its center. Then, two people push perpendicularly on the car, one at each end. The turntable is rotated one-half of a revolution to turn the car around. If the length of the car is 7.00 m and each person pushes with a 175 N force, what is the magnitude of the net torque applied to the car?

2 x (7.00/2)x 175 N-m
