Find the moment of a force about Point A
- I have attached a diagram of the problem as well
EDIT It's actually 62 degrees.. I drew it incorrectly ^^
Moment = Force * perpendicular distance to point
The Attempt at a Solution
what I've done is the following
Moment of C = Fx * distance
Moment of C = 22cos62 * 950
Moment of C = 9811.96kN
Moment of C = Fy * distance
Moment of C = 22sin62 * 0
Moment of C = 0kN
I would just like someone to revise my work, and see if I have any errors :S I believe I'm doing it right, but I don't feel confident. Any help would be appreciated thanks.
I also feel as if the answer is:
Moment of C = 22 * 950, but that's just me :D
My final question would be... how would I present the final answer in a proper manner?
like... The horizontal moment of C is... and the vertical moment of C is...? or should there be just 1 solid answer? thanks a lot!
