1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A 600-g squirrel stands on the end of a 2.5-m-long branch that makes an angle of 60 degrees with the vertical trunk of the tree. What torque acts on the branch due to the squirrel? 2. Relevant equations Torque= FxD torque=torque 3. The attempt at a solution I'm pretty stumped on this one. I converted 600g to kg getting .6 kg. Then multiplied that by 9.8 to get a force of 5.88. Then I found the length of what I think is D by using sin(30) = x/2.5 to get 1.25. Then I did torque= 5.88(1.25) to get 7.35 Newton meters. I have a feeling i'm completely wrong though. Any help would be appreciated.
