Moment (torque)

Two forces, equal and opposite but not acting on the same line.
This is the definition of couple force; what does it mean that they don't act on the same line and why is the net torque produced by couple force not zero?

Before discussing torque and couples, do you know what a moment is?

That is have you studied the principle of the lever?
