
Determine the angle θ
(0o≤ θ ≤180o) of the force
F so that it produces a
maximum moment and a
minimum moment about
point A. Also, what are the
magnitudes of these
maximum and minimum
moments?

In order to raise the lamp
post from the position
shown, the force F on the
cable must create a
counterclockwise moment
of 1500 lb.ft about point
A. Determine the
magnitude of F that must
be applied to the cable.


Two couples act on the
frame. If d=4 , determine
the resultant couple
moment. Compute the
result by resolving each
force into x and y
components and (a)
finding the moment of
each couple and (b)
summing the moments of
all the force components
about point A.
