# How to Calculate Moments of Proper Elasticity # How to Calculate Moments of Proper Elasticity

Moments are a special kind of indefinite quantity. In ordinary life, a moment is a time between two events, where the quantity of time involved is a constant. In physics, a moment is a term involving the whole product of a time and a definite amount, and this way it accounts in part for the fact that the amount is actually measured or arranged in space. We call any quantity whose definition depends on the time-step that it belongs to a moment.

Momentum describes how a body is rotating in some way, at certain speeds. A moment is a curve on a surface, or the force of gravity acting on an object. The torque or strength of a rotation is just the derivative of the acceleration, which is given by the formula

The most familiar example of a moment is a falling apple. When the weight of the apple falls to the floor, its momentum is changed to the horizontal momentum of its fall. Now we can calculate the force by multiplying the weight with the horizontal distance and then the vertical distance. If we do it by hand, we would get a wrong result; we must use a graph to make sure we are comparing the right functions. Luckily, computer technology has made it much easier to calculate the moments by calculating the tangent and tangential forces, as well as the radial and tangential angles of rotation.

The tangential and radial forces are the outward radial and downward forces acting on an object in a straight line. The radial forces will be the outward radial force acting on an object when it is moving in a straight line; while the tangential force acts perpendicular to the motion, on an object moving in a curved path. It can be done for any given set of objects, given a set of relevant points on the surface that the force will be acting on.

There are a few cases where you might encounter a problem in computing the moments, such as when the angle of attack is ninety degrees and there is no straight line of action of the force. In this case, you will still get the tangent and radial moments, but you won’t get the right integral moment. This is due to the difference in the orientation of the axis of rotation and the vector sum of all the components. The only real way to correctly solve for the moments is by finding the force diagram for the system. The moment arm of a rotational system is the sum of all the components of the rotation, the moment of position and the moment of time.
