440:221 Lectures School of Engineering, Fall 2011 Moments in 3-D can be calculated using scalar (2-D) approach but it can be difficult and time consuming. Thus, it is often easier to use a mathematical approach called the vector cross product . Using the vector cross product, M O = r × F . Here r is the position vector from point O to any point on the line of action of F . moment of a force – vector formulation
