static moment

static moment

[′stad·ik ′mō·mənt]
(mechanics)
A scalar quantity (such as area or mass) multiplied by the perpendicular distance from a point connected with the quantity (such as the centroid of the area or the center of mass) to a reference axis.
The magnitude of some vector (such as force, momentum, or a directed line segment) multiplied by the length of a perpendicular dropped from the line of action of the vector to a reference point.
