440:221 Lectures quations of Equilibrium ( oE in3D As stated earlier, when a body is in equilibrium, the net force and the Equations of Equilibrium (EoE) in 3D net moment equal zero, i.e., F = 0 and M O = 0 . hese two vector equations can be written as ix scalar equations of These two vector equations can be written as six scalar equations of equilibrium (EofE). These are F X = F Y = F Z = 0 M X = M Y = M Z = 0 he moment equations can be determined about any point Usually The moment equations can be determined about any point. Usually, choosing the point where the maximum number of unknown forces are present simplifies the solution . Any forces occurring at the point where moments are taken do not appear in the moment School of Engineering, Fall 2009 pp p equation since they pass through the point.
