1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A fishing pole is 2.00m long and inclined to the horizontal at an angle of 20.0degrees. What is the torque exerted by the fish about an axis perpendicular to the page and passing through the hand of the person holding the pole? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I don't have the FBD. I know how the picture looks like, but what i'm not clear about is the torque. It says the axis perpendicular to the page and passing through the hand...is that the y component of the force exerted by the fish? if it's not clear to you all, i'll attach the picture.
