Moment z x y F r d e O α By definition, the magnitude of the moment of F about O is M = F d (1) But this effect is uniquely defined if we associate this magnitude with a direction ‘ e ’ which is perpendicular to the plane which contains both vector F & r in a sense given by the right-hand screw rule. Therefore the moment can be regarded as a vector with a magnitude | F | | d | = | F | | r | sin and in the direction of e . Therefore M 0 = | F | | r | ( sin ) e = | F | | d | e (2) Vector product of two vectors The vector product of two vectors A and B is B A AxB B A BxA A x B ( A B ) has a magnitude | A | | B | sin where is the angle between vector. The direction of A x B is given by the right hand screw rule at shown. Note that vector product is not commutative. i.e. B x A A x B in fact B x A = - A x B A x B , in Cartesian form, we have
