    I will post the picture in a minute
    The answers are
    i)Show work
    ii) 1600000Nm (2.s.f)
    iii) 6830N, 3830N

    I got the first two questions right, however, the third one is a problem.

    Before the wind blew, the force caused by A was 5000 more than that caused by C. It now only needs to be 3000 more, so call the forces at C and A y and 3000+y. Work out the combined moments of A and C about Obefore the wind blows (I got 610000). The moments after the wind starts blowing must be the same. That gives you an equation for y.

    I left B and D out of it since it said that those forces stayed the same.

    Moment of A and C about O before the wind blows = 8000 x 50 + 3000 x 70.
    That should have been part of your working in (ii).

    Now repeat with 3000+y and y (the wind won't have any turning effect since it acts all the way along the side of the ship). The result must equal the same as above, i.e. 610000.
