Homework Help: Engineering Moments Help

  1. Oct 12, 2015 #1

    Hi, I need help with this question.

    Is it correct if I draw the line perpendicular to A and calculate it using a right angled triangle?

    Some guidance please ...
    the y height is 280mm and x is 400mm

    Hello keyboardrow2, welcome to PF :smile: !

    Did you see a template flash by ? It's use is mandatory in PF -- many good reasons.

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    We have that all right

    2. Relevant equations

    Tells us if you have enough to start with :

    3. The attempt at a solution

    where you may get stuck somewhere and we'll help you !

    For now: there is no meaning to "line perpendicular to A" if A is a point.

    Good luck !​
