  • Turning Forces
    • Moments
      • The turning effect of a force
      • The size of the moment of the force...
        • Moment = FORCE x Perpendicular DISTANCE (from the line of action to the pivot)
          • M=FxD
            • Moment - NM (Newton Metres)
            • Force - N (newtons)
            • Distance - M (Metres)
    • The force on a spanner casues a turning effect or moment on the nut (which acts as a pivot)
      • A larger force would mean a larger moment
