So, I have recently run across a real life application of things I haven't used in 10 years. A 170lb man is hanging from a 100 foot rope off the edge of a vertical cliff. He is pushing himself out from the rock with a 10 foot pole. The angle of the rope from the cliff is 5.74 degrees. How much force / or weight is on the pole? How would i figure this out? If some one could tell me, using very small words, and pretending I didn't take advanced calculus and physics..... I really would like to understand this again. Thank You.
