Equilibrium Force Systems

Equations of Equilibrium:
• Conditions of Static Equilibrium of concurrent forces (acting on an object at the same time

The sum of all forces in the x-direction or horizontal is zero. ΣFx=0

The sum of all forces in the y-direction or vertical is zero. ΣFy=0

Example 1:

Solution

ΣFx=0
Ccos45∘=Tcos30∘
C=1.2247T

ΣFy=0
Tsin30∘+Ccos45∘=600
Tsin30∘+(1.2247T)cos45∘=600
1.366T=600
T=439.24 lb answer

C=1.2247(439.24)
C=537.94 lb answer
Example 2:

Solution

ΣFx=0
Pcosθ=Wsin30∘
Pcos45∘=300sin30∘
P=212.13 lb answer

ΣFy=0
N=Psinθ+Wcos30∘
N=212.13sin45∘+300cos30∘
N=409.81 lb answer
