Homework Statement
The bar ABCDE is subjected to three forces: F1 = 75 N and lies along DC, F2 = 50 N and lies along ED, F3 = 40 N and lies along CB. In addition,AB moves 3sqrt2 m on xy plane, BC moves 2 m along y plane, CD moves 1 m along z plane, and DE moves 1 m along x plane. Determine the moment these three forces create about the segment AB. The diagram for this problem is attached to this post. Thanks!

I'm fairly sure that the problem uses a formula similar to the one used to find the moment about a point, except I'm unsure of how to approach the problem when the moment is supposed to be found about a segment.
