APPLICATIONS With the force P , a person is creating a moment M A . Does all of M A act to turn the socket? How would you calculate an answer to this question?
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

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
