Concept

Problem: The wrench in the figure has six forces of equal magnitude acting on it.Rank these forces (A through F) on the basis of the magnitude of the torque they apply to the wrench, measured about an axis centered on the bolt. Rank from largest to smallest. To rank items as equivalent, overlap them.
