1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I'd like to figure out the moment at pt A using the scalar approach, not vector 2. Relevant equations Vector M = r x f Scalar M = fd 3. The attempt at a solution I think I might be missing some concept that would make my life easier... I figured out how to do this by vector. But I am confused as how to do this by scalar. for the couple at the top, My = (2)(2) = 4 j and then theres a moment at d which causes a rotation in the x axis Mx= 5 i The 10kN force can be solved if i put a matching 10kN going up and down at pt A, and then the 10kN pointing down at A and the 10kN pointing up at E would be a couple. However, if I do that the moment calculated is not strictly in one axis. Kind of confused, I have a feeling im approaching this wrong.
