# 2 forces, net torque

**1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data**

Two 59.9N forces are applied in opposite directions to the 28.3cm long figure shown. If the angle θ = 29.6°, what is the net torque about the center of mass?

Same question as this:http://ift.tt/1pY83ZE

But it was unresolved?

**2. Relevant equations**

torque = force * radius * sin theta

**3. The attempt at a solution**

Got net torque = torque of force 1 + torque of force 2

torque 1= 0.283*59.9*sin 119.6

torque 2= – 0.283*59.9*sin 119.6

net torque = 0

my answer is wrong and I have no clue why. 🙁

assistance and guidance will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
