If you have a moment… (at the end of a rod)

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Lets say you have some moment (given) at the end of a rod going clockwise. Do you have to factor this into the equations for forces? My professor has some notes written about it, but I don’t know if he’s incorrect.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

So if the moment is 1000 Nm and the distance from a point A on the rod is 10m. Would the force be factored into the equation for the forces in the y-direction (so it would be 100 N)?
