## Homework Statement

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 ^^

## Homework Equations

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!
