Chapter 4 Moments

# 4.1 Moments

The moment of a force measures the turning effect of the force on a rigid body. It is the product of the magnitude of the force and the perpendicular distance from the axis of rotation. In this lesson you learn about moments, moment of force about a point, torsional moment, and moment of force.

If you're a student in a school/college that's based in England, you might be entitled for full access to our eLearning platform where you can access to all our tutorial videos and practice questions.

Please check with the head of Maths or deputy headteacher at your school/college to request access if they've already registered to our free pilot subscription. They can always reach us at the below email:
