moment of force

the rotational 'turning effect' of a force. Calculated as the product of the force and the perpendicular (i.e. at 90°) distance between the point of application (and direction) of the force and the pivot; also known as torque. net moment of force the mathematical result of all the moments applied to an object or body, taking into account the size and direction of the moments.

torque (tôrk),

n 1. a force that produces or tends to produce rotation in a body. Such force applied to a tooth tends to cause rotation around its long axis.
2. force applied to a tooth to produce rotation of a tooth on a mesiodistal or buccolingual (labiolingual) axis.
3. a rotary force applied to a denture base.
