April 1, 2008 Physics 40B Lecture 1 2 Conditions for Static Equilibrium Translational Equilibrium r F Net = d r P dt r P = constant = 0 ( no net external forces ) " F x # = F y # = F z # = 0 \$ Net = d r L dt = 0 r L = constant = 0 ( no net external torques ) " \$ x # = \$ y # = \$ z # = 0 r \$ = r r x r F Rotational Equilibrium Center of Gravity The force of gravity and the torque due to gravity can be considered to be acting at a single point of the body--I.e., the Center-of-Gravity (cg) . If “g” is constant over the volume of the object then the Center-of-Gravity is the same as the Center-of-Mass point.
