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.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
