# What is the formula or equation for Principle of moments?

Posted in Scalars and Vectors | Email This Post |As per the principle of moments,“The sum of the clockwise moments about any point must be equal to the sum of anti-clockwise moments about the same point, provided that the body is in equilibrium under the action of a number of parallel forces.”

According to the principle of moments,

*Sum of anti-clockwise moments = sum of clockwise moments *

The formula or equation for Principle of moments is given as,

** m _{1}d_{1} + m_{2}d_{2} =m_{3}d_{3} + m_{4}d_{4}**
