MOMENT = FORCE X DISTANCE = 5 x 0.25 = 1.25 N.m 5 N25 cm

A 1200 N force is needed at F1 to balance the plank! x1 x2 If a 60 Kg person stands on one end of a 3 meter scaffolding plank what force is needed to support him on the other end of the plank if the plank is balancing on a fulcrum 2m away from the 60kg person? ?? 60kg 2m F3 1 m F1 ?? Sum of all moments = zero Choose clockwise as POSITIVE! F3 = fulcrum

SAMPLE ONLY SAMPLE ONLY SAMPLE ONLY For FULL presentation click HERE >> ScienceCafe Force Couple A special case of moments is a couple. A couple consists of two parallel forces that are equal in magnitude, opposite in direction and do not act in a straight line but are separated by a distance (d). It does not produce any translation, only rotation. The resultant force of a couple is zero. BUT, the resultant of a couple is not zero; it is a pure moment. Example: A steering wheel of diameter 0.75 m is turned by a force of 20 N applied to each end. Calculate the magnitude of the force couple: Couple = F x d = (20 x 0.75) = 15 N.m F F d d 2 d 2 Couple = Total Turning Moment = (F x d/2) + (F x d/2) = ½ (F x d) + ½ (F x d) = F x d
