Problem with forces

  1. Mar 19, 2005 #1
    Hi everbody,
    I have trouble solving the following problem. I need a sollution in 2D, the 3D case does not matter.

    I have a freely movable Body with mass M and Moment Of Inertia I.
    The center of gravity of the body is at point A. Some Force F as pulling on the body at point B.
    If the body would be sticked together with some other body at point C by a nail so that both bodies can freely rotate, what force would pull on the other body on point C?

    I am sorry for my body english, it's not my native language. I hope I was able to describe the problem/question.
