Suppose that a problem involves 2 unknown forces at certain specified points (point forces), along with other relevant info that leads to having 2 equations to solve for the unknown variables.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Assuming that the force at one point is solved for easily...that the forces are perpendicular to one another so that Summing the forces in only 1 direction provides the answer for the previously unknown force...call it force "X" at point "A"

Is it acceptable to then Sum the moments at "A" or should I use any point other than "A" ?

Thanks in advance
