calculating moments, force and distanceForce
Moment- a turning effect. Moment is the effect when a lever turns on a pivot.
This is how to calculate Moment, Force and distance.
Moment= Force multiplied by distance! Measured in newton meters=NM
Force= Moment divided by distance! Measured in newtons=N
Distance= Moment divided by force! Commonly measured in meters=M
Balanced and unbalanced forces:-
Balanced forces are equal size but are in opposite directions.
Unbalanced forces are not equal size but could be in opposite directions.
