Two forces each of 5N act vertically upwards and downwards respectively on the two ends of a uniform metre rule which is placed at its mid-point as shown in the diagram. Determine the magnitude of the resultant moment of these forces about the midpoint.

M = F x (vector)d (or) F x S

M = 5 x 50/100m

= 5 x 0.5

= 2.5 Nm
