The force on a sailboat mast can be represented by the following function.
  2.5 / 200

where z  elevation above the deck and H  the height of the mast. The total force F exerted on the mast can
be determined by the integrating this function over the height of the mast:
 

F   f z dz
The line of action can also be determined by integration:

Use the composite Simpson’s 1/3 rule to compute F and d for the case where H=30
