A treatise on elementary statics

James Hamblin Smith - 1869
...distance varies as that force. 62. If F be the measure of a force acting on a body, and D the measure of the perpendicular distance of the line of action of the force from a fixed point in the body, the measure of the moment of the force about the point is equal to F .D....
