    All right. Are we talking about this?
    Calculate the total clockwise moment about the hinge.
    So, to start you off, can you determine the forces that act in the clockwise direction?

    Yeah thats the question. Umm i had a look i though the hytoneuse of the triangle where the cable is would be but from looking at the markscheme it doesnt seem to be so im not really too sure

    Well, tension in the cable acts in the anticlockwise direction, doesn't it?

    Basically you have to determine forces that act clockwise - i.e. downwards in this case. Those would be weight of the rod and weight of the sign. What moments do these forces give?

    I GET IT . It will be 19.6x1.8 +9.8x0.9 =44.1Nm
