In this lesson, we will learn how to find and interpret the three components of the moment of a force in the i, j, and k directions.

Q1:

The moment of the force about the origin is , where and . Given that the force passes through a point whose -coordinate is 4, find the and coordinates of the point.

Q2:

The moment of the force about the origin is , where and . Given that the force passes through a point whose -coordinate is 13, find the and coordinates of the point.

Q3:

If the force is acting at a point whose position vector, with respect to the origin point, is , and the components of the moment of the force about the -axis and the -axis are 73 and 242 units of moment, respectively, find the values of and .
