1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data http://imgur.com/a/IYbP1 A Car sitting on a frame with an attached bar pressing down on the hinged section (Orange). A hinged section coming off the frame with a wheel attached (Blue) How to calculate the radial force on the wheel bearing at 1m away from centre of engine? 2. Relevant equations Statics, sum of the directions. 3. The attempt at a solution I have split the engine weight into 2 and multiplied by the distance 1m to get 250kg.m If I multiply 250kg by 9.81N I get 2.452kN of force. I'm negating the bar pushing down because that will be set equal to the Fxd at that location, so I can ignore that for the wheel location? How is 250kgm equal to 250kg even though it's 1m away? How do I convert this properly to get a force?
