1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I only need help on one part of this question - if you look at the pict in the link below, I ultimately need to determine the torque on point A. Length F and D are equal LM (Large Mass) is twice that of the Small Mass (SM) or point G & E respectively. I know I need to calculate the downward force but all the force is applied at point C which, being angular, is actually two forces, one vertical and one horizontal. It seems like the arraignment and size difference between the two masses might shift the horizontal component of the force??? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Click here for diagram Thank you all in advance - I do appreciate it!
