**Moment of a force: Scalar Formulation**

**The magnitude of the moment of a force:**

M_{O}: Magnitude of the moment of **F** around point O

d: Perpendicular distance from O to the line of action of **F**

**Note: moving a force along its line of action does not change its moment**

**Note: **M_{0} =Fd =Fr sin (Î¸) =rFâŠ¥

**Direction of the moment in 2-D:**The direction of the moment is given by the right hand rule: Counter Clockwise (CCW) is out of the page, Clockwise (CW) is into the page.

**Calculating the moment in 2-D using components:** Moments add together as vectors. Select a positive direction (CCW or CW), then calculate each moment and add them using the proper sign for each term. For example:

M0 =-F_{x} d_{1} + F_{y} d_{2} CCW positive
