1 Chapter 12 – Equilibrium and Elasticity I. Equilibrium - Definition - Requirements - Static equilibrium II. Center of gravity III. Elasticity - Tension and compression - Shearing - Hydraulic stress I. Equilibrium - Definition: 0 , 0 = = L P a a Example: block resting on a table, hockey puck sliding across a frictionless surface with constant velocity, the rotating blades of a ceiling fan, the wheel of a bike traveling across a straight path at constant speed. An object is in equilibrium if: - The linear momentum of its center of mass is constant. - Its angular momentum about its center of mass is constant. - Static equilibrium: Objects that are not moving either in TRANSLATION or ROTATION Example: block resting on a table .
