# Determine the force which member CD exerts on the pin at C.

## Question:

Determine the force which member CD exerts on the pin at C.

## Moment

The moment is the agent which tries to produce an angular rotation inside a body about a fixed point. Its magnitude can be calculated by the multiplying magnitude of the force and its perpendicular distance from the point about which moment has to figure out.
