The meter stick in the drawing can rotate about an axis located at the 20.0-cm mark. The axis is perpendicular to the screen. A force F acts at the left end; the force is perpendicular to the meter stick and has a magnitude of 175 N. A second force, either F1 or F2, acts at the 80.0-cm mark, as the drawing shows. The meter stick is in equilibrium. Which force, F1 or F2, acts on the meter stick, and what is its magnitude?

  • physics -

    f2 , magnitude = 102N

  • physics -

    F2, magnitude = 71.2 N

  • physics -

    71.2N
