Mechanics Homework 5-2 227 - Moment of resultant force about a point Name_______________ Mr. Haynes Date_______________

Problem 5-2 Two forces P and Q pass through a point A which is 4 m to the right of and 3 m above a moment center O. Force P is 890 N directed up to the right at 30° with the horizontal and force Q is 445 N directed up to the left at 60° with the horizontal. Determine the moment of the resultant of these two forces with respect to O.

$$M_O = 1676.74 \, \text{ N}\cdot\text{m}$$   (counterclockwise)
