Given the following couple moments:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

C1=100i+30j+82k lb-ft

C2=-16i+42j lb-ft

C3=15k lb-ft

what couple will restrain the twisting action of this system about an axis going from

r1=6i+3j+2k ft to r2=10i-2j+3k ft

while giving a moment of 100 lb-ft about the x axis and 50 lb-ft about the yaxis?

I understand that because of the given information the final couple moment will be C = 100i +50j +?k, but I am unsure as to how you compute the value for the k component of the vector. I dont think i can use the axis given to find the force in the other couples because they arent on the same axis. Please advise.
