7. A 3.0m rod is pivoted about its left end. A force of 6.0 N is applied perpendicular to the rod at a distance of 1.2m from the pivot causing a ccw torque, and a force of 5.2 N is applied at the end of the rod 3.0m from the pivot. The 5.2 N is at an angle of 30degree to the rod and causes a cw torque. What is the net torque abot the pivot?
a. 15N.m
b. 0N.m
c. -6.3N.m
d. -0.6N.m

b.(3.9, 1.4)m
c.(-1.4, -3.9)m
d.(-3.9, -1.4)m
