Two equal magnitude forces are in opposite directions, and their lines of action are separated by distance d. These two forces are applied to a solid disk, which is mounted on a frictionless axle. If d is half the radius r of the disk, which of the following positions for the forces would give the most torque?

A 3.0-m rod is pivoted about its left end. A force of 10 N is applied perpendicular to the rod at a distance of 1.2 m from the pivot causing a ccw torque, and a force of 5.2 N is applied at the end of the rod 3.0 m from the pivot. The 5.2-N force is at an angle of 30o to the rod and causes a cw torque. What is the net torque about the pivot? (Take ccw as positive.)
