# Moments

A moment of a force is defined as the product of the force and the perpendicular distance of the force from a pivot. $moment=F⁢s$ 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 $moment=F⁢s⁢sinθ$ where $\theta$ 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 $ΣΓi=0$
