1Moment 3.1 Moment The moment of a force indicates the tendency of a body to turn about an axis passing through a point O. In 2-D analysis, the moment of F about a point O is represented by a vector M O normal to the plane containing F and of magnitude M O = F d, where d is the ٣ distance from point O to the line of action of the force. 3-3 Direction of rotation: (+) for CCW, (-) for CW moments.

1Moment 3.1 Moment cont. The right-hand rule: the moment vector is pointing in the direction of e thumb with the fingers curled in the thumb, with the fingers curled in the direction of rotational tendency. Moment of a system of forces The resultant moment produced byasystem of forces about any point O is equal to the sum of the moments of the individual forces about that point. 3-4 M Ro = Σ F d

xample 3 3 Example 3.3 Determine the resultant moment of the four forces cting on the rod about acting on the rod about point O. Solution: Assume that CCW moment is positive M Ro = Σ Fd = -50×2 + 60×0 + 20×(3 sin30 ° ) - 40×(4 + 3 cos30 ° ) = -334 N ڄ m = 334 N ڄ m The negative sign indicates that the rotation is CW. 3-5

3 Moment in 3- 3.3 Moment in 3 D Moment in 2-D can be calculated using a scalar approach. For 3-D problems, it is sometimes easier to use vector cross product for calculation. M O = r × F r is a position vector from point O to any point on the line of action of F. The magnitude of this moment is rFs in θ F(rs θ )F d M O = r F sin = F (r sin ) = Fd The direction and sense of rotation of M O follow the ght and Rule 3-9 right-hand Rule.
