Pre-Lab: Static Equilibrium Name: This is part D of your lab. The weight (F 2 ) on the right is unknown. This system is in static equilibrium. Example: Torque exerted by F 1 1. τ = F d (d = pivot point to point of attachment) 2. τ = (sin 60º 6 N) 0.3m (d = 50 cm - 20 cm = 0.3 m) 3. τ = 1.56 Nm in the clockwise (cw) direction The lab manual simplifies Torque as being the perpendicular component of force multiplied by the distance to pivot point. Why cw? If you pull up on the meter stick at 20 cm while it rotates about the 50 cm mark, the stick will rotate cw. 1. (½) Do both the forces and torques sum to zero when in static equilibrium? a. No b. Yes c. Depends on the chosen pivot point 2. (1) What is the value of F 2 ? 3. (½) What is the F net ? (select all that apply) a. 4.8 + 1.0 + 2.4 + cos 60°(6) + cos 45°(F 2 ) = 0 b. 4.8 + 1.0 + 2.4 - cos 60°(6) - cos

### 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.
