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
