# Experiment -Testing the principle of moments - PowerPoint PPT Presentation

1 / 7

When forces act in a different direction, yet still balance, the total turning effect in each direction will be the same: sum of clockwise = sum of anticlockwise moments moments. What did you notice about the anticlockwise moment and the clockwise moment?.
