physics

In the figure, forces A, B, C and D each have magnitude 50.0 N and act at the same point on the object. What torque (magnitude and direction) does A force exert on the object about point P? What torque (magnitude and direction) B does force exert on the object about point P? What torque (magnitude and direction) C does force exert on the object about point P? What torque (magnitude and direction) D does force exert on the object about point P? What is the total torque about point P?

  1. There is no way we can proceed to answer that question without the figure mentioned. All I can advise you to do is to draw a free body diagram showing all the forces, the directions and points where they are applied, and set the vector sum of all forces and moments equal to zero.
