What is ‘MOMENT’?

In physics, if the quantity is multiplied by the distance (radial distance) then the quantity will be termed as moment.

We generally know only about moment of inertia, but torque is also a moment which represents moment of force, and angular momentum is the moment of momentum.

Since, the general meaning of moment is ‘at that particular time‘. Similarly in physics the moment provides position depending on the several distance (at that peculiar time).

      2. Oh that’s the reason, but there is nothing tough and only depends on our perspective.
