What is the moment of area?

The first moment of area equals the summation of area time's distance to an axis. It is a measure of the distribution of the area of a shape in relationship to an axis. First moment of area is commonly used in engineering applications to determine the centroid of an object or the statically moment of area.

Furthermore, what is meant by moment of inertia of area?

The 2nd moment of area, also known as moment of inertia of plane area, area moment of inertia, or second area moment, is a geometrical property of an area which reflects how its points are distributed with regard to an arbitrary axis.
