Lesson: Moments in 2DMathematics
In this lesson, we will learn how to find the sum of moments of a group of forces acting on a body about a point in 2D.
Sample Question Videos
If a force, having a magnitude of 498 N, is 8 cm away from a point , find the norm of the moment of the force about the point , giving your answer in N⋅m.
Given that is a square with side length 7 cm and forces acting on it as shown in the figure, calculate the algebraic sum of the moments about vertex .
In the figure, determine the sum of the moments of the forces 13 N, 18 N, and 7 N about rounding your answer to two decimal places.
