What is the meaning of "raised to some power" in the following sentence?
In its most simple and basic form, a moment is the product of the distance to some point, raised to some power, multiplied by some physical quantity such as the force, charge, etc. at that point
Does "raised to some power" mean "after we apply some force to some point"? In this sentence, is some force a charge, a force?
If a comma appears in the middle (for example, ", raised to some power," ), is it a representation of the conjunction and subject omitted?
