A man holds a 185-N ball in his hand, with the forearm horizontal (see the figure). He can support the ball in this position because of the flexor muscle force , which is applied perpendicular to the forearm. The forearm weighs 24.3 N and has a center of gravity as indicated. Find (a) the magnitude of and the (b) magnitude and (c) direction (as a positive angle counterclockwise from horizontal) of the force applied by the upper arm bone to the forearm at the elbow joint.

May I please get help with this question. I'm very confused. I appreciate all the assistance.
