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

Force F = 460 N acts perpendicular to the inclined plane

Determine the moment produced by F about point A.
Enter the x, y, and z components of the moment separated by commas.
2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

r(CA)=4j-3k
u(CA)=4/5j-3/5k

r(CB)=-3i+4j
u(CB)=-3/5i+4/5j

u(CA) x u(CB)=1.28i+.36j+.48k
F=460(1.28i+.36j+.48k)=589i+166j+221k

r(CA) x F=1382i-1767j-2356k
