A deep-sea fisherman struggles to bring in a big salmon (see figure below). Find the force each hand must exert on the pole if the tension in the line is 159 N. Neglect the weight of the pole and assume that the force exerted by the left hand is directed along the horizontal. (Let θ = 53.50 and L = 1.10 m.)
