Torque on Box with Angle

APPH12-LFYXLU

A force of $25$ $N$ is applied at a $30^{ \circ }$ angle relative to the box height at a distance of $1.5$ $m$ above the ground. The box has a height of $3$ $m$ and a mass of $15$ $kg$. 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

$0$ $N \cdot m$

B

$37.5$ $N \cdot m$

C

$32.5$ $N \cdot m$

D

$18.75$ $N \cdot m$
