Hello can someone explain what is axial and radial moments?
But you saw that already, I suppose ?
Yes...wanted some info otherwise
Thought as much. So now we come to your question: what is your question ?
Is torque an axial or radial moment?
Torque is not a moment in the sense of the moments in the link in post #2. (You can see this from the difference in dimensions).
It is a moment in the sense of arm x force. In many languages torque and moment are synonyms.
If forced to make a choice, I would choose 'axial' instead of 'radial', but strong preference for me is on just 'moment'.
Why axial and not radial
Torque is a pseudovector that points in an axial direction. So I would want to avoid the term 'radial' in its neighborhood: that suggests something that points perpendicular to the axis.
(I grant that this is a personal consideration, but perhaps others share it).
Can you give me daily life examples of axial and radial moments for my understanding?
Separate names with a comma.
