Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0He means, solve for the force at each of the points where there is an angle and then sum them to see where the net force is

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You guys have missed the question. What is being asked is what the moment due to each force. Can you help the questioner?

JamesJ

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'll do it then. What is the definition of the moment of a force?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The moment of a force is its ability to create rotation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, but mathematically and precisely, with a formula?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0M = F*d, where d is the distance between the point of application and the pivot

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes. Now, let's start with F3. What's the moment due to that force?

JamesJ

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1..the moment of F3 about B? Well, what's the distance of the application of the force from B? Zero. Can F3 make something rotate *around* B? No. Therefore the moment due to F3 is zero.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ah!! that's what I thought! but I thought it would be wrong bcs it was 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0bcs the position vector at B is <0,0,0> and crossing it with the F3 vector would give zero.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But one question, would not the perpendicular component of F3 try to produce some moiton that vertical bar?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The question at a qualitative level is this: can a force applied at a point cause other things to rotate about that point? And the answer is no. It might make that point and the solid attached to it move, but it doesn't cause rotation around that point per se. Hence: A force applied to a point causes no rotation about that point.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its the same as if I go to the center of the bolt and try to make it rotate applying a force right on the center of rotations. no rotation would happen!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have to move at least an infinitesimally small amount away from that center of rotation for it to actually rotate (no matter how large the force). Motion may occur in the form of displacement, but no actual rotation about that point :D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for f2. I think it goes like this:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the position vector would be : <3, 4 , 0>

JamesJ

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No, you want the positive vector RELATIVE TO B

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Which will be just r = <0,4,0>

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmmm would not that be moving to the right of B and up from B?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh yes! sorry I was doing F1 mistakenly !

JamesJ

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh right. yes, F2. Doing them backwards because F1 is the most complicated.
