The Achilles tendon force Ft is mobilized
when the man tries to stand on his toes.
As this is done, each of his feet is
subjected to a reactive force of Nt =
400N. If the resultant moment produced
by forces Ft and Nt about the ankle joint
A is required to be zero, determine the
magnitude of Ft .

## 4.2 Cross Product

Cross product of two vectors A and B yields C, which is
written as

Magnitude of C is the product of
the magnitudes of A and B

plane containing A and B such that C is specified by
the right hand rule

## 4.2 Cross Product

Laws of Operations

vector opposite in direction to C
B X A = -C

## 4.2 Cross Product

Laws of Operations
2. Multiplication by a Scalar
a( A X B ) = (aA) X B = A X (aB) = ( A X B )a
3. Distributive Law
AX(B+D)=(AXB)+(AXD)
Proper order of the cross product must be maintained
since they are not commutative

## Also known as Varignons Theorem

Moment of a force about a point is equal to the sum
of the moments of the forces components about the
point
Since F = F1 + F2,
MO = r X F
= r X (F1 + F2)
= r X F1 + r X F2
