To introduce the concept of the free- body diagram for a particle. 2. To show how to solve particle equilibrium problems using the equations of equilibrium. Definitions 1. A particle is in equilibrium if it is at rest if originally at rest or has a constant velocity if originally in motion. 2. Static equilibrium denotes a body at rest. 3. Newton’s first law is that a body at rest is not subjected to any unbalanced forces. Page 4 Objectives 1. To introduce the concept of the free- body diagram for a particle. 2.
