Calculate the location of point load

Calculate the distance x for locating point load so that the moment on the beam at point B is zero.

The column A moves to the right with variable speed V(t)=4*Vo*t+c. Calculate the angular velocity and the angular acceleration of the beam B. The beam is pinned at one end. (c is constant).
