    It was and I honestly don't know how to work out the force in this situation. Sorry for no contribution at all.
    Good luck.

    do you need to do something about the vertical and horizontal components?

    Yes I have resolved the components but I'm not sure what to do next? :/

    It's Force x Perpendicular Distance, so you need to, I'm guessing, form a triangle if that helps to get the distance from O to the line a action of the force.

    I thought the distance is 4m as given?

    No, you need to find the perpendicular distance to the 'line of action' of the force.

    So, on your diagram I want you to get a ruler and place it on top of the force's line, and extend it out, then draw a line from O to the force's line, making them perpendicular.


    This is the length that you want to find

    Sorry I don't quite understand where you want me to draw the line. Is it possible if you can draw on the diagram please?

    I thought that at first too but it doesn't give the correct answer. It should be 2610Nm.

    Is your calculator in radian. I've just done it and I got 2609.8 so 2610Nm when rounded

    You my friend are a life saver! Thank you so much. That was the problem, no wonder all my other calculations were coming out wrong yesterday.

    Would it be possible to help me with another question please?
