What is the net force on the rod? A) Up B) Down C) Zero Will the rod move? A) Yes B) No F F y x ydirection: F y = ma y +F F = 0 Yes, it rotates! Lecture 15 Purdue University, Physics 220 4 The picture below shows two people lifting a heavy log. Which of the two people is supporting the greatest weight? A) The person on the left is supporting the greatest weight B) The person on the right is supporting the greatest weight C) They are supporting the same weight Look at torque about center: F R L F L L/2 = 0 F R = F L Quiz mg F L F R L/2 L Lecture 15 Purdue University, Physics 220 5 Static Equilibrium 1) Draw FBD 2) Choose Axis of rotation...
