Unformatted text preview: The Conditions for Equilibrium • Expect static equilibrium whenever aceleration vector a = { a x ; a y ; a z } and angular acceleration vector α are zero, vector F net = 0 vector τ net = 0 • The first of these equations gives you up to three conditions (for x , y , and z components); the lower formula gives between 1 and 3 conditions: all of these are necessary for static equilibrium ! c circlecopyrt L.Frommhold . – p.17/17 Example 9-5 • Net force F y = 0 : F A + F B- F beam- F P = 0 • Net torque τ z = 0 ! Axis through point P, ( any point will do !) Net torque =0 : 0 =- R 1 mg- R 2 Mg + R 3 F B Solve for F B ! • Now use F y = 0 (above) to compute F A c circlecopyrt L.Frommhold . – p.16/17 Example 9-6 • F x ,net = 0 : F Hx- F Tx = 0 • F y ,net = 0 : F Hy- mg- Mg + F Ty = 0 • τ z,net = 0 , axis to the right, R 1 mg- R 2 F Hy = 0 • 4 unknowns: F Hx , F Hy , F Tx , F Ty ; only 3 equations ?...
