The force it applies.

Figure above is an overhead view of a rigid rod that turns about a vertical axle until the identical rubber stoppers A and B are forced against rigid walls at distances rA=7r_{A} = 7 cmcm and rB=4r_{B} = 4 cmcm from the axle. Initially the stoppers touch the walls without being compressed. Then force F\vec{F}of magnitude 220220 NN is applied perpendicular to the rod at a distance R=5R = 5 cmcm from the axle. Find the magnitude of the force compressing Stopper A.
