Moments make things turn or rotate

It is caused by forces, but they are not forces itself

They have a direction (clockwise/anticlockwise)

The bigger the force, the bigger the moment

Teh further the force from the pivot the bigger the moment

Size of moment = force x distance

Force is measured in N (Newtons)

DIstance is measured in M or Cm

Forces can make objects turn if there is a pivot

Turning forces = Moments
