Calculate the moment if you were to hold a 15lb bowling ball with your arm straight out and your forearm perpendicular to your body. What is the pinnned connection

• Engineering/physics -

The moment (about the shoulder) is the weight times the arm length from the ball to your shoulder

• Engineering/physics -

Would that make the shoulder the pinned connection?

• Engineering/physics -

The hinge is at the shoulder all right.

Thank you (:
