APPLICATIONS Sleeve A of this bracket can provide a maximum resisting moment of 125 N·m about the x-axis. How would you determine the maximum magnitude of F before turning about the x axis occurs?

SCALAR ANALYSIS Recall that the moment of a scalar force about any point O is M O = F d O where d O is the perpendicular (or shortest) distance from the point to the force’s line of action . This concept can be extended to find the moment of a force about an axis. Finding the moment of a force about an axis can help answer the types of questions we just considered.

SCALAR ANALYSIS In the figure above, the moment about the y-axis would be M y = F z (d x ) = F (r cos θ) . However, unless the force can
