  • A force may have a variety of effects on an object; these include changing its velocity, changing its shape or causing it to turn. This Factsheet will: 
    • Explain how forces have a turning effect (called a moment) and work through the calculations involved. 
    • Examine what happens when a body is acted upon by many forces, but does not move - this is called being in equilibrium. In this Factsheet, 
    the examples considered will mainly involve the use of moments; cases involving more complicated resolving will be dealt with later.
