Zero-force members Note : Make a plan before starting to solve Negative solutions imply that the direction of the force is opposite to that chosen on the FBD. Leave FBDs intact and carry negative signs throughout calculations Be able to express solutions in vector form Draw a separate overall Free Body Diagram (separate from the artwork). Label different FBDs (FBD #1, FBD #2, etc.) and refer to the specific FBD when writing your equilibrium eqns. Be able to write forces as vectors.
