A square metal plate 0.18 m
on each side is pivoted about
an axis through point 0 at its
center and perpendicular to
the plate. Calculate the net
torque about this axis due to
the three forces shown if the
magnitudes of the forces are
Fi = 18 N, F2 = 26 N, and F3
14 N. The plate and all forces
are in the plane of the page.
