Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Please Help!!! on Tuesday, October 11, 2011 at 12:06am.

A diver stands at rest at the end of a massless diving board as shown in Figure P8.16.

(a) If the mass of the diver is 161 kg, and the board is 4 m long, what is the torque due to gravity on the diving board?

I was thinking that T=Frsin(theta)...
but I can't seem to get it right. What would theta be?
