Principle

Coplanar forces (weight, spring balance) act on the moments disc on either side of the pivot. In equilibrium, the moments are determined as a function of the magnitude and direction of the forces and of the reference point.

Benefits

  • Understand the relation and the difference between moments and force.
  • Smart designed equipment that makes measurements clear and easy.
  • The famous quote of Archimedes in its quantitative formulation of todays physics: "Give me the place to stand, and I shall move the earth."

Tasks

  1. Determination of the moment as a function of the distance between the origin of the coordinates and the point of action of the force.
  2. Determination of the moment as a function of the angle between the force and the position vector to the point of action of the force.
  3. Determination of the moment as a function of the force.
