**1. Homework Statement**

**2. Homework 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.
