Honors Physics

A mechanic jacks up the front of a car to an angle of 8.8° with the horizontal in order to change the front tires. The car is 2.92 m long and has a mass of 1330 kg. Gravitational force acts at the center of mass, which is located 1.02 m from the front end. The rear wheels are 0.41 from the back end. Calculate the magnitude of the torque exerted by the jack.
