The angle θ = 25.9º is an irrelevant distraction. Like F1 and F2, F3 is directed tangentially (perpendicular to the displacement vector) at the point of contact. So you would use a 90º angle. Torque: τ = r × F F3 may be directed 25.9º counterclockwise from left but r3 is directed 25.9º counterclockwise from up. The difference in direction is 90º. Clockwise torque: τ = ( F1 + F2 )( b ) - ( F3 )( a ) τ = ( 10.7N + 8.55N )( 0.25m ) - ( 12.9N )( 0.9m τ = 6.79 Nm
