3 Equilibrium Equilibrium A body in equilibrium has no acceleration: no linear acceleration no angular acceleration A body is in equilibrium if forces are balanced : there is no net force (so no linear acceleration) there is no net torque (so no angular acceleration) compression extension 8

9 Equilibrium: a simple bar Equilibrium: a simple bar F ceiling A B Assume: - equilibrium: no motion despite forces - bar and ceiling are rigid What is the force on/from the ceiling due to the weight F ? F 1 F 2 F 3 Point A is in equilibrium: - balance F 1 = - F String AB is in equilibrium: - balance F 2 = - F 1 = F Point B is in equilibrium: - balance F 3 = - F 2 = - F action due to weight reaction due to ceiling 7 imagine this bar is you: what would you feel?
