(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The question reads:

F1 is 120kn at A. B is located 300mm from A. f1 is inclined at 40 degrees to the x axis. Force one may be replaced by a statically equicilant force system consisting of a single force f2 and a couple c. Let force f2 pass through b

It asks you to

B) determine the plane, magnitude and direction and inclination of force f2

C) determine the plane of the couple c, it's sense of rotation and the magnitude of it's resultant

No idea where to start with this. Help would be greatly appreciated
