Moments


> ... > Central > Science > Moments >




A moment of a force is defined as the product of the force and the perpendicular distance of the force from a pivot. moment=Fs where the force, F is perpendicular to the displacement, s.

If the force and displacement are not perpendicular then the moment of the force is given by moment=Fssinθ where θ is the angle between the force and the displacement.
Or in vector notation Γ=F.s

For equilibrium both the sum of the forces and the sum of the moments must be zero, i.e., ΣFi=0 and ΣΓi=0
