Moment on axis

  • #1
A small boat hangs from two brackets, one of which is shown in the figure. It is known that the moment, on the z axis, the resulting force Ra applied in the point A of support must not exceed the value of 217 N.m, in value absolute. Determine the more value possible the traction force in cable ABAD.

Not understand the problem. What is the issue? How can I fix?

Hi Apprentice123! :smile:

It means, if the moment of RA about that z-axis is 217 N.m, what is the tension in the cable? :wink:
