a moment is a turning effect of a force
d=perpendicular distance from the line of action of the force to the pivot
if the total anticlockwise moment equals the total clockwise moment about a pivot, the object is balanced and wont turn.
the amount of force needed to produce a particular moment depends on the distance the force is applied from the pivot
levers increase the distance from the pivot at which the force is applied-less force…
