# Moment about a point

## Homework Statement

for M2 , if i take the moment at pont C , then my ans would be (0.3i) x ((125X(3/5) j +125(4/5) k )= 30j +22.5k
Which is not same with the book which use moment about D . why ? Is the value at the triangle at te upper part incorrect (circle part) ?

Still too small. Just blow up the diagram.

If you are taking moments about C then presumably you are considering the force at D. Isn't that in the direction -3/5j+4/5k? And should't the displacement vector be -3i?

Ya, I would ended up getting 22.5k +30j . But if I take moment about D , I would get 22.5j+30k... Is it correct???
