[L.] The Moment of a force with respect to a point is the product of the force and the length of the perpendicular let fall from the point on the line along which the force acts. The term Moment of a force with respect to a line and a plane is also used. The Moment of a couple is the moment of either force about a point in the line of action of the other force. The Moment of inertia of a body with respect to a given axis is the sum of the products formed by multiplying the mass of each particle by the square of its distance from the axis.
