The fishing pole in the figure below makes an angle of 20.0° with the horizontal. What is the magnitude of the torque exerted by the fish about an axis perpendicular to the page and passing through the angler's hand if the fish pulls on the fishing line with a force = 102 N at an angle 37.0° below the horizontal? The force is applied at a point L = 2.02 m from the angler's hands.

    Fn = 102*cos57° = 55.55 N

    Q = Fn*L = 55.55*2.02 = 112.2 N∙m
