# 8. A particle is located at the vector position 7 =(4.00î + 6.00j) m, and a force exerted on it is given byF = (3.00î + 2.00 j) N. (a) What is the torque acting onthe particle about the origin? (b) Can there be anotherpoint about which the torque caused by this force onthis particle will be in the opposite direction and halfas large in magnitude? (c) Can there be more thanone such point? (d) Can such a point lie on the y axis?(e) Can more than one such point lie on the y axis?(f) Determine the position vector of one such point.%3D
