A flag pole consists of a 2.0 m long, 5.0 kg decorative ball on the end. What is the gravitational torque on the flag pole, calculated about an axis at the fixed end of the pole?

If the flagpole is upright, as most are, there is no gravitational torque. If it is horizontal, multiply the weight of the ball at the end by the length of the pole.
