    Planar Equilibrium Equilibrium: R = F = 0 M OR = M O = 0 Position vectors, forces lie in x-y plane, moment vector perpendicular to plane. Three equations for three unknowns. F x = 0 F y = 0 M Oz = 0

    Loads and Reactions Loads are contact or action-at-a- distance forces that are applied, and therefore controllable. Reactions are forces that develop in response to loads, typically at supports of a structure.
