I have a doubt Applying moment at a point in a beam. Normally in beam theory we define moment at a point about some coordinate system.Does it mean that the point will try to accelerate around some axis in that coordinate system? The path of the point will be in a circle with centre at the coordinate system and radius as the distance between the coordinate system and the point in the beam.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

if we define the moment about the coordinate system at the same point itself what will be the result?
