Homework Help: physics class-Help!!!

Posted by Steph on Wednesday, July 16, 2008 at 11:40pm.

A 3.0 m rod is pivoted about its left end.A force of 6.0 N is applied perpendicular to the rod at a distance of 1.2 m from the pivot causing a ccw torque, and a force of 5.2 is applied at the end of the rod 3.0 m from the pivot. The 5.2 N is at an angle of 30 degrees to the rod and causes a cw torque. What is the net torque about the pivot?

I don't have a clue how to even start this question.

PLEASE HELP!!!
