Concept

Problem: A wrench is acting on a nut. The nut is at the origin and the wrench extends from the nut along the +x-axis. A force of 150 N acts on the wrench at the position x = 15.0 cm at an angle of 30.0°. What is the torque the wrench exerts on the nut? A) 1949 N•m B) 11.3 N•m C) 19.5 N•m D) 2250 N•m E) 22.5 N•m
