21-22.2 Equations of Equilibrium for a Rigid Body in Three Dimensions (a) Vector Equations of Equilibrium ΣF = 0, Eq. 1 ΣM O = 0, Eq. 2 Where ΣF =vector sum of all the external forces acting on the body ΣM O =vector sum of the couple moments and the moments of all the forces about any point O (b) Scalar Equations of Equilibrium ΣF = Σ F X i+ Σ F y j+ Σ F z k= 0 Σ F X = 0, Eq. 1 Σ F Y = 0, Eq. 2 Σ F Z = 0, Eq. 3 ΣM O = Σ M X i+ Σ M y j+ Σ M z k =0 Σ M X = 0, Eq. 4 Σ M Y = 0, Eq. 5 Σ M Z = 0, Eq. 6 Σ F X , Σ F Y F Z = Algebraic sum of the external force components acting in the X, Y, and Z directions Σ M X , Σ M Y M Z = Algebraic sum of the moment components about the X,Y, and Z axes 3
