## Homework Statement

Hi everyone. I am attempting to calculate the internal moment at point B about the y-axis. I have correctly found everything else.

My calculations:

Weight of 500mm section of pipe = 58.9N

Weight of 400mm section of pipe = 47.1N

Vertical reaction at A = 58.9 + 47.1 = 106N

## Homework Equations

Moment = Force x Distance

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm not really sure I can do that with the two 60N forces, but I also can't see why not.

The correct answer is 6.23Nm according to the solutions provided.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
