1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 2. Relevant equations Torque(n/m)=Force(N)*Length(L) Basic Trigonometry 3. The attempt at a solution The concept of torque is new to me, so I just need a push in the right direction here. lbs and ft are used so we are using non-metric? Should I convert them to metric? How do lbs convert to newtons? One pound-force is 4.448222N right? Am I going in the right direction? T=LF Length=10ft Force=250lbs We can't just do LF without some trig, and this where I don't know where to start.
