Moment force

  1. Feb 1, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    See attachment

    2. Relevant equations

    I was thinking : [tex]M_x=U_x |r X R|[/tex]

    where r is going to be the distance from any point on the x axis to any point on the line of action of the force

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Im not really sure how to exactly do this problem...Ive been plugging in numbers hoping for the best but nothing good has come out of it...Any help would be appreciate.
