Pressure  -   In solids If a force is applied over a smaller  surface area you get a larger  pressure. Pressure can be calculated using the  following equation: Newtons N Pascals or N/m 2 m 2
Pressure   increases     with depth.   Pressure acts   equally in all directions.   Pressure   is transmitted through liquids. Pressure - In liquids All hydraulics systems work because the

Unformatted text preview: pressure is the same throughout the system. Moments Moments make things turn or rotate. They are caused by forces but are not forces themselves. The moment will be bigger if: The force causing the turning effect is bigger. The force is further from the pivot. Calculating the size of a moment Moment = Force x Distance Newtons N m Nm Anti-clockwise Moment = Clockwise Moment BALANCED Net moment is zero...

### 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.
