Turning Effects Of Forces! Trivia Quiz

The Moment is the product of the force multiplied by the distance from the point an object will turn. In our past classes, we got to understand pivots and how they work. To help you refresh your memory, take up the quiz below and see if you followed the turning effects of forces, and ensure that you get to read up some more on the topic.
