1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Question 1-4 from here http://www.eng.auburn.edu/~htippur/mech3130/hw-1-solutions-2012.pdf My question is why exactly does the moment have 2 parts from 1 force? Are those simply the components which together make up the net moment? Does each force always have 2 moments in opposite directions? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I think that the sum of the two moments makes the net moment.
