I have to find at what the angle of the string is using the torque balance equation.

W= 167.4grams

a= 49cm

b= 98cm

m= 100grams

The angle is 51 degrees based on the measurements during the lab, but I have to figure out how to do it using the torque balance equation.

What my guess is for the equation is Wga = mgbsin(angle

Am I going in somewhat of the right direction? Also how would I get the angle by it's self. Or how do you move sin if I do at all?

Thanks.
