Knowing that the tension in the cable is 450 N, determine the moment about the diagonal AD of the force exerted on the frame by portion BH of the cable. Problem 1. Determine the moment MOL of a force about a given axis OL. MOL is defined as MOL = l . MO = l . ( r x F ) where l is the unit vector along OL and r is a position vector from any point on the line OL to any point on the line of action of F.

TBH = ( 0.375 i + 0.75 j _ 0.75 k ) MAD = l AD . ( rB/A x TBH )
