Unformatted text preview: proportional to the force For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction Concepts from Statics These laws are important when you are Drawing Free Body Diagrams Show all Forces (applied and reaction) and moments (applied and reaction) acting on a body to help determine equations of equilibrium Making force balances Writing out all of the forces in the system along a major axis (should equal zero in statics)...
