(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Which angle is relevant to the torque of the cable with the hinge as the axis of rotation? Where is the radius used in the Torque equation?

2. Relevant equations

Torque = Force * radius

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't know which one to use, they are both angles created by the axis and the cable. And as for the radius, I think it is the red line I drew perpendicular to the cable.
