Law of Moments

When object is balanced and stationary there is a balance between:

  • the total moments of the forces turning the object in a clockwise direction
  • the total moments of the forces turning the object in an anticlockwise direction

TOTAL CLOCKWISE MOMENTS = TOTAL ANTICLOCKWISE MOMENTS

OR

(F1)(D1) = (F2)(D2)

F = force, D = distance
