The moment of force also known as the turning effect.
A force can cause many things to move or stop. When a force causes an object to turn, this turning effect is called Moments.
Moment can be either clockwise or anticlockwise.
Example : A person sitting on a seesaw.
Moment = force × perpendicular distance from turning point to the line of action of the force.
Moment = F×d
Unit for Moment is Newton- meter(Nm).
