I understand the process to solve the moment of a force at a given point applied about an axis. However, what if the force was instead applied to a second, non-parallel?

Perhaps a physical example is the moment about the door hinge, if force is evenly applied to a long handle that is contiguously attached to the door, instead of applying it at a door knob? How is the moment about the hinge calculated?
