# What is the unit of moment of force?

The unit of moment of force (torque) is Nm (Newton x meter). This is not related to energy and work, that also happen to have units of Nm.

### Difference between shear force and bending moment?

shear force is maximum at support and zero at centre Bending moment maximum at centre and zero at support for all simply supported beams.. shear force acts on a place and it induce on a direct place where the loads are transfered.. bending moment act with reference to lever arm distance., (B.M = force X Distance) unit for shear force is KN unit for mending moment is Kn.m

### What is the SI unit of moment of force?

Moment of force, also known as torque, is expressed in newton x meter. Note that energy, too, is expressed in newton x meter, but the two are unrelated. In the case of energy, the special unit "joule" is used; this name is not applied to the unit of torque, however, which is just called "neston-meter".
