The towline exerts a force of P = 5.8 kN at the end of the 8-m-long crane boom.
If θ = 30∘ determine the placement x of the hook at B so that this force creates a maximum moment about point O.
The Attempt at a Solution
M(max)= 8(5800) = 4.64kN*m
My initial thought was to find the components of P but there is not enough info for that. I've seen some other work equating the x & y distances to M(max) but without another angle I'm not sure where to go.
