Question

The moment of a force about a given axis depends on:
(a) only on the magnitude of force
(b) only on the perpendicular distance of force from the axis
(c) neither the force nor the perpendicular distance of force from the axis
(d) both, the force and its perpendicular distance from the axis.

Answer

(d) both, the force and its perpendicular distance from the axis

Reason — The moment of a force (also known as torque) about an axis is calculated by multiplying the magnitude of the force by the perpendicular distance from the axis to the line of action of the force. So, it depends on both the magnitude of the force and its perpendicular distance from the axis.
