A rod of 3m is acted by two forces shown below calculate 1) net force 2) total moment of force
Asked by umarakhtar659 | 07 Jul, 2023, 08:24: PM
Let us assume that force in upward direction is positive and downward direction is negative.

Net force Fnet = 5N - 5N = 0 N

Moment of force = Force × distance × sinθ

where distance is measured from the pivot point to the point of application of force and
θ is angle between direction of force and lever arm.

Let us take moment about the mid point of the given rod .

Net moment of force M = ( 5 × 1.5 × sin90 ) + ( 5 × 1.5 × sin90 ) = 15 N m
