Calculate the Resultant Moment of Forces About O and State Its Direction in Fig. 3. - Physics
Calculate the resultant moment of forces about O and state its direction in fig.
In the given figure, forces 10 N and 100 N act clockwise and the forces 15 N and 4 N act anticlockwise
MOment of force = sum of clockwise moments - sum of anti clockwise moments
Moments of force = (10 x 5 + 100 x 0 + 4 x 6) - ( 15 x 4) = 74 - 60 = 14 Nm
or 14 Nm in clockwise direction.
Concept: Moment (Turning Effect) of a Force Or Torque
