The 6-kg rod BC connects a 10-kg disk centered at A to a 5-kg rod CD. The motion of the system is controlled by the couple M applied to disk A. Knowing that at the instant shown disk A has an angular velocity of 36 rad/s clockwise and an angular acceleration of 150 rad/s2 counterclockwise, determine (a) the couple M, (b) the components of the force exerted at C on rod BC.
