440:221 Lectures oment of a force calar formulation In the 2-D case, the magnitude of the moment is M o = F d Moment of a force - scalar formulation As shown, d is the perpendicular distance from point O to the line of action of the force. In 2-D, the direction of M is either clockwise or School of Engineering, Fall 2009 O counter-clockwise, depending on the tendency for rotation.
