## 233 A force creating counterclockwise and clockwise moments

**Problem 233**

In Fig. P-231, a force P intersects the X axis at 4 ft to the right of O. If its moment about A is 170 ft·lb counterclockwise and its moment about B is 40 ft·lb clockwise, determine its y intercept.

## 232 Moment of a force about points O and B

**Problem 232**

In Fig. P-231, the moment of a certain force F is 180 ft·lb clockwise about O and 90 ft·lb counterclockwise about B. If its moment about A is zero, determine the force.

## 231 Force P producing a clockwise moment about the origin

**Problem 231**

A force P passing through points A and B in Fig. P-231 has a clockwise moment of 300 ft-lb about O. Compute the value of P.
