Page 1 M5 Statically Determinate Systems Can determine force distribution by solely applying equations of equilibrium Return to flagpole example (Planar system) Which is a planar system, but we can again generalize to 3-D 3 reactions, 3 degrees of freedom, therefore the problem is statically determinate + Apply horizontal equilibrium of forces: ±A ±- F x i = 0: H A = 0 Vertical equilibrium of forces No applied forces B + - y = 0: V < F = = Finally equilibrium of moments:
