Physics

A weight lifter returned from the grocery store and unpacked his purchases, fitting everything into the refrigerator door. If the dimensions of the door are 2 meters * 0.57 meters, and he applies a force of 77 N at an angle of 120 degrees with respect to the door, what is the magnitude of the torque created on the door’s hinge?

It depends upon where the force is applied and how the angle of the door (relative to which the force is applied) is defined.
Since this force is presumably used to put things in the door shelves, and not to open or close it, the force is aplied in many different locations. The question is confusingly written.

Well that's all the information they give me, and I typed it exactly word for word from the problem. Oh well I was totally lost and thought someone else might be able to figure it out! Thanks anyway!
