An athlete at the gym holds a 4.33 kg steel ball in his hand. His arm is 75.0 cm long and has a mass of 5.28 kg. What is the magnitude of the torque about his shoulder if he holds his arm straight out to his side, parallel to the floor?

  • Physics -

    The torque has to be the weight of the ball x distance plus the weight of the arm x 1/2 the length of the arm(assuming the cg is at the midpoint).
