Homework Help: Statics: Couples

  1. Sep 22, 2010 #1
    Hey guys, I'm kind of struggling with a piece of this problem.

    [PLAIN]http://img97.imageshack.us/img97/6862/372h.png [Broken]

    This isn't my problem exactly (different numbers and units) but I am having trouble completing part c. I successfully did parts a and b by putting the two forces down, finding the distance between the two forces, and using M = Fd to find F.

    But I'm not sure how to do c since there's no way of knowing d.

    Thanks!

    Figured this one out! It's the longest distance possible (A to C)
