(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [SOLVED] torque question

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A bucket filled with water has a mass of 23 kg and is attached to a rope wound around a cylinder with a radius of 0.050 m at the top of a well. What torque does the weight of the water and bucket produce on the cylinder?

2. Relevant equations

F=ma

g=9.8 m/s

Torque= Force*radius

3. The attempt at a solution

just checking if this is the way to go...

F= 225.4 N

so torque= 11.27?

i just plugged in the numbers but i'm not entirely sure of whats going on in this scenario.
