Summer 2005 COE 2001 Statics 3 Moments 1. Moment of a force about a line (e.g., a hinge) is the projection of M on to the line. 1. Only the component of F perpendicular to contributes to the moment. 2. M due to F is equal to M due to all components of F . 1. To compute M @ Q given M @ P and F i use: 1. Couple : moment developed by equal and opposite forces separated by d; direction is perpendicular to both F and d. Since Σ F i =0 we see that Σ M Q =0+ M P so a couple produces a moment that is constant ˆ u l ˆ ˆ ˆ ˆ ( ) (( ) ) M M u u r F u u = = l l l l l r r r r ( ) A B A B A B M r F F r F r F M M = + = + = + l r r r r r r r r r r Q QP i P M r F M = + r r r r Equipollent Systems Two force & moment systems are equipollent (“equal power”) if they have the same resultant at any point.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
