2 Imagine a body subjected to a system of forces that lie in the x - y plane: For equilibrium of a rigid body in 2-D, F x = 0; ∑ F y = 0; ∑M O = 0 • ∑ F x and ∑ F y represent sums of x and y components of all the forces • ∑M O represents the sum of the couple moments and moments of the force components Most commonly used equations for 2-D coplanar equilibrium problems 5.3: Equations of Equilibrium
3 Alternative sets of Equilibrium Equations First set: Line through A and B not parallel to y - axis (on same line) collinear not and C A, B

### 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.
