Homework Help: Moments and torque

  1. Feb 9, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Hello~ I just had a general question about moments and finding them~ I have no idea how to! In my statics class the professor gave us the Moment about o = r X force, but it gets confusing with more than one vector on more than one plane.... and there is also this thing everyone is supposed to do with their right hand to get the direction... (?)


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    Any explanations would be great! Thanks
