A beam $\displaystyle 3m$ long with fixed support on one end and hinge on the other end is subjected to a uniform load of $10\ kN/m$. What is the maximum shear of this beam? The solution is this one: ...
This question is related to the course structural analysis. As part of our exam grade every student has been given different multiple homework assignments which we have to solve. One of the problems ...
What is the difference between torque and moment? I would like to see mathematical definitions for both quantities. I also do not prefer definitions like "It is the tendancy..../It is a measure of ...
I recently came across the definition of the Center of Mass of a system as the point about which the first moment of mass is zero. Further, it defined Moment of Inertia as the second moment of mass. ...
I've been looking for the relation between moment of a tennis racket and its maneuverability. If I define maneuverability as the easiness to get in position for quick reaction strokes like volleys and ...
I was wondering, why in Newtonian physics torque is called "torque" while in static mechanics they call it "moment"? I prefer by far the term "torque", for not only it sounds strong, but also ...
