The moment of a force

is the turning effect produced by a force, on the body, on which it acts

is equal to the product of force acting on the body and the perpendicular distance of a point and the line of action of the force

is equal to twice the area of the triangle, whose base is the line representing the force and whose vertex is the point, about which the moment is taken

### the algebraic sum of their moments about any point is equal to the moment of their resultant force about the same point.

**Explanation:**

Varingon's theorem of moments states that if a number of coplanar forces acting on a particle are in equilibrium, then the algebraic sum of their moments about any point is equal to the moment of their resultant force about the same point.

**Answer is:**

### the algebraic sum of their moments about any point in their plane is zero

**Explanation:**

According to the law of moments, if a number of coplanar forces acting on a particle are in equilibrium, then the algebraic sum of their moments about any point in their plane is zero.

**Answer is:**

### all of the above
