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.
