Mechanics Homework 226 - Moment of force about different points Name_______________

In Fig. P-226 assuming clockwise moments as positive, compute the moment of force F = 200 N and force P = 165 N about points A, B, C, and D.

Moment of force F:

\(M_A = 180 \, \text{ N}\cdot \text{m}\)

\(M_B = -288 \, \text{ N}\cdot \text{m}\)

\(M_C = -180 \, \text{ N}\cdot \text{m}\)

\(M_D = -108 \, \text{ N}\cdot \text{m}\)

Moment of force P:

\(M_A = 0\)

\(M_B = 41.186 \, \text{ N}\cdot \text{m}\)

\(M_C = 164.746 \, \text{ N}\cdot \text{m}\)

\(M_D = -164.746 \, \text{ N}\cdot \text{m}\)
