What is Equilibrium?
O Equilibrium is defined as the state of a body when it
is at rest or in a non-accelerated motion when all the
resultant force acting on it are zero and also when
the sum of all torques about an axis are zero.
Conditions for Equilibrium
O The resultant forces acting on
a body must be equal to zero.
O The resultant moment of forces
acting on a body, in all points
must be zero.
Principles of Moments
O When a body is in equilibrium, the sum of all
anticlockwise moments of any points must
be the same as the sum of all clockwise
moments of the point.
Couple
O When two parallel forces
which are equal and
opposite are not acting on
the same line, a couple is
formed.
O The moment of couple is
equal to the product of
either force and the
perpendicular distance
between the line of action
of both the forces.
