Moment of Force

Share This: Definition: It is the Turning effect produced by a force, on the body, on which it acts. The moment of force is equal to the product of force and the perpendicular distance of the point about which the moment is required and the line of action of the force. Mathematically: Moment of force=F x L Read More »

Mass Moment of Inertia

Share This: Definition: It has been established since long that a rigid body is composed of small particles. if the mass of every particle of a body is multiplied by the square of its perpendicular distance from a fixed live, then the sum of these quantities (for the whole body) is known as mass moment of inertia of the body. ...

Torque

Share This: Definition: It may be defined as the product of force and the perpendicular distance of its line of action from the given point or axis. A little consideration will show that the torque is equivalent to a couple acting upon a body. Read More »
