## Homework Statement

Calculating the moment of force F about the axis isn't hard; how do I determine how to produce the maximum moment?

## Homework Equations

M

_{axis}= û

_{axis}⋅ (r×F)

F = 30N (This doesn't change at all during the problem)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I would guess that since the problem axis is parallel to the y-axis, you should minimize that component of the force (β=90°). I'm not totally sure on that point though. As for the other two axes, I have no idea.
