Torque on Box with Angle

APPH12-LFYXLU

A force of $25\text{ N}$ is applied at a $30^{ \circ }$ angle relative to the box height at a distance of $1.5\text{ m}$ above the ground. The box has a height of $3\text{ m}$ and a mass of $15\text{ kg}$. The axis of rotation is marked by an $x$ in the diagram.

If the box neither slides nor tips (it is fixed to the ground with no movement at all) what torque is applied as a result of the force shown?

A

$0\ \mathrm{N \cdot m}$

B

$37.5\ \mathrm{N \cdot m}$

C

$32.5\ \mathrm{N \cdot m}$

D

$18.75\ \mathrm{N \cdot m}$
