(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Determine the heighthabove the baseBat which the resultant of the three forces acts.

2. Relevant equations

R_{x}=F_{1,x}+ F_{2,x}+ F_{3,x}

3. The attempt at a solution

R_{x}=(-300)+650+(-250)

R_{x}=100

but where?! The picture shows the diameter decreasing a tad just under the 650 force, does that matter?

Anyways, am I suppose to use moments/couples? Dont moments/couples have to be equal in magnitude, opposite/parallel?

Thanks,

Frozenguy
