## 5. Turning Effect of Forces

Content

• Moments

• Centre of gravity

• Stability Learning Outcomes Candidates should be able to:

(a) describe the moment of a force in terms of its turning effect and relate this to everyday examples

(b) recall and apply the relationship moment of a force (or torque) = force × perpendicular distance from the pivot to new situations or to solve related problems

(c) state the principle of moments for a body in equilibrium

(d) apply the principle of moments to new situations or to solve related problems

(e) show understanding that the weight of a body may be taken as acting at a single point known as its centre of gravity

(f) describe qualitatively the effect of the position of the centre of gravity on the stability of objects
