  • Turning Effects
    • Formula
      • Force (N) x Perpendicular distance fr pivot (m) = Moment (Nm)
        • To produce a certain moment, the greater the distance (d), the lesser the force required.
    • Principle of moments
      • The sum of clockwise moments about any point acting as the pivot equals the sum of the anticlockwise moments about the same point.
    • Examples
      • Door hinges
      • Levers
      • Spanners
