Equilibrium and Static
• When all the forces that act upon an object are
balanced, then the object is said to be in a state of
equilibrium.
∑F = 0, a = 0
• An object at equilibrium is either ...
– at rest and staying at rest - "static equilibrium.”
– in motion and continuing in motion with the same
speed and direction.

Fg = 10 N
• As the angle with the horizontal increases, the amount of
tensional force required to hold the sign at equilibrium
decreases.
In conclusion
• Equilibrium is the state of an object in which all the forces
acting upon it are balanced. In such cases, the net force is 0
Newton. Knowing the forces acting upon an object,
trigonometric functions can be utilized to determine the
horizontal and vertical components of each force. At
equilibrium, all the vertical components must balance and all
the horizontal components must balance.
Net Force Problems Revisited
• A force directed an angle can be resolved into two
components - a horizontal and a vertical component.
•
•
To determine Net Force, add all the forces by components,
then use Pythagorean Theorem to solve for the magnitude
and tangent function to determine direction
The acceleration of an object can be determined by using
Newton's second law.
Example - Determine the net force and
acceleration
Object moves in horizontal direction
Fnet = 69.9 N, right
m = (Fgrav / g) = 20 kg
a = (69.9 N) / (20 kg) =3.50 m/s/s, right
Example - Determine the net force and
acceleration
Object moves in horizontal direction
Fnet = 30.7 N, right
a = 1.23 m/s/s, right.

Practice 5
• A student moves a box of books by attaching a rope to the box
and pulling with a force of 90.0 N at an angle of 30.0 degrees.
The box of books has a mass of 20.0 kg, and the coefficient of
kinetic friction between the bottom of the box and the
sidewalk is 0.50. find the acceleration of the box.
determine the net force and acceleration
Fnet2 = (∑Fx)2 + (∑Fy)2
Fnet = 39 N
θ = tan-1(-23/32) = -36o
θ = 324o CCW
a = Fnet / m = 39 N / 5 kg = 8.0 m/s2,
same direction as the force
Inclined Planes
• Objects accelerate down inclined planes because of an
unbalanced force. The unbalanced force is caused by gravity.
• Note: the normal force is not directed in
the direction that we are accustomed to.
The normal forces are always directed
perpendicular to the surface that the
object is on.
Fg on Inclined Plane
An important idea
• The process of analyzing the forces acting upon objects on
inclined planes will involve resolving the weight vector (Fgrav)
into two perpendicular components.
• The perpendicular component of the force of gravity is directed
opposite the normal force and as such balances the normal force.
• The parallel component of the force of gravity is part of the net
force that is responsible to object’s motion along the incline.
Forces on an Incline Calculations
• Consider forces:
– Perpendicular
• F┴ = Fg cos θ
• Cancel out Normal (FN )
θ
– Parallel
• F// = Fg sin θ
• All the parallel components
(including the friction force)
add together to yield the net
force. Which should directed
along the incline.

Essential Knowledge
• What happens to the component of weight that is
perpendicular to the plane as the angle is increased?
Decreases – Fg perpendicular
• What happens to the component of weight that points
ALONG the plane as the angle is increased?
Increases – Fg parallel
• What happens to the normal force as the angle is
increased?
Decreases – depends on Fg perpendicular
• What happens to the friction force as the angle is
increased?
Decreases – depends on normal force
Example
Fg = 50N
30°
• What is the magnitude of the normal force?
FN = Fg perpendicular = Fg cos θ = 43.3 N
• If the box is sliding with a constant velocity,
what is the magnitude of the friction force?
Ff = Fg parallel = Fg sin θ = 25 N
Example 1
• The free-body diagram shows the forces acting upon a 100-kg
crate that is sliding down an inclined plane. The plane is inclined
at an angle of 30 degrees. The coefficient of friction between the
crate and the incline is 0.3. Determine the net force and
acceleration of the crate.
F┴ = Fgrav∙cos30o = 850 N
F// = Fgrav∙sin30o = 500 N
In perpendicular direction:
Fnorm = F┴ = 850 N
In parallel direction:
Fnet = F// - Ff
Fnet = 500 N - µFnorm
Fnet = 235 N
a = Fnet / m = 2.35 m/s2
