A) Calculate about point C, the CM. Take counterclockwise torques to be positive.

B) Calculate about point point P at one end. Take counterclockwise torques to be positive.

B) Calculate about point point P at one end. Take counterclockwise torques to be positive.

F1y = 56*cos 32 = 47.49 N

F1x = 56*sen 32 = 29.68 N

F2x = -32.5√2 N

F2y = 32.5√2 N

F3x = 52*cos32 = 44.10 N

F3y = -52*sin 32 = -27.56 N

around point C

F2 has 0 arm ..so it is uneffective

Mc = ℓ/2*(F1x-F3x) = 1.6*(29.68-44.10) = -23.1 Nm (i.e. ccw according to cartesian plan and posive according to your definition)

arounf point P

F3 has 0 arm ..so it is uneffective

Mp = (ℓ*F1x+ℓ/2*F2x) = (3.2*29.68-1.6*32.5√2) = 21.4 Nm (i.e. cw according to cartesian plan and negative according to your definition)
