Question

A horizontal, 2.00 m long, 3.00 kg uniform beam that lies along the east-west direction is acted on by two forces.  At the east end of the beam, a 200 N force pushes downward.  At the west end of the beam, a 200 N force pushed upward.  What is the torque about the center of mass of the beam?
