EQUATIONS OF EQUILIBRIUM (Section 5.3) A body is subjected to a system of forces that lie in the x-y plane. When in equilibrium, the net force and net moment acting on the body are zero (as discussed earlier in Section 5.1). This 2-D condition can be represented by the three scalar equations: x y F 1 F 2 F 3 F 4 O F x = 0 F y = 0 M O = 0
