The question itself:
A modern art sculptor anchors 1 meter of a cast iron pole in the ground and leaves 3 meters of the pole sticking out of the ground at a 60° angle. The owner of the metal shop told him that the pole is rated to withstand up to 9000 Nm of torque before it bends. If the sculptor decides instead to hang a 100 kg aluminum pheasant from the pole in the previous problem, what is the net torque on the pole?
The "Correct" answer (since it's all multiple choice and online) is 0Nm, but for the life of me I can't figure out why there isn't any net torque when the pole has something hanging on the end.
Am I missing something incredibly basic, or was the wrong answer input as the correct one?
