Problem 4.1 In Active Example 4.

1, the 40-kN force 40 kN

points 30° above the horizontal. Suppose that the force
points 30° below the horizontal instead. Draw a sketch
of the beam with the new orientation of the force. What A
30°
is the moment of the force about point A?
6m

Solution: The perpendicular distance from A to the line of action

of the force is unchanged

D D 6 m sin 30° D 3 m

M D 3 m40 kN D 120 kN-m

However, with its new orientation, the force would tend to cause the
beam to rotate about A in the clockwise direction. The moment is
clockwise

M D 120 kN-m clockwise

Problem 4.2 The mass m1 D 20 kg. The magnitude of 0.35 m 0.35 m 0.35 m

bar AB by the weights of the two suspended masses is
170 N-m. What is the magnitude of the total moment B
due to the forces about point A?

m1 m2
Solution: The total moment about B is
MB D m2 9.81 m/s2 0.35 m C 20 kg9.81 m/s2 0.7 m

Problem 4.3 The wheels of the overhead crane exert 10 ft 25 ft 15 ft
downward forces on the horizontal I-beam at B and C.
If the force at B is 40 kip and the force at C is 44 kip,
determine the sum of the moments of the forces on the
beam about (a) point A, (b) point D. B C
A D

Solution: Use 2-dimensional moment strategy: determine normal

distance to line of action D; calculate magnitude DF; determine sign.
10 ft 25 ft 15 ft
Add moments.

(a) The normal distances from A to the lines of action are DAB D
A D
10 ft, and DAC D 35 ft. The moments are clockwise (negative).
Hence,
