EQUILIBRIUM OF PARTICLE IN 2-D (Section 3.3)

This is an example of a 2-D or


coplanar force system. If the
whole assembly is in
equilibrium, then particle A is
also in equilibrium.
To determine the tensions in
the cables for a given weight
of the engine, we need to
learn how to draw a free body
diagram and apply equations
of equilibrium.

7
THE WHAT, WHY AND HOW OF A FREE BODY
DIAGRAM (FBD)

Free Body Diagrams are one of the most important things for
you to know how to draw and use.

What ? - It is a drawing that shows


all external forces acting on the
particle.

Why ? - It helps you write the


equations of equilibrium used to
solve for the unknowns (usually
forces or angles).
8
How ?
1. Imagine the particle to be isolated or cut free from its
surroundings.
2. Show all the forces that act on the particle.
Active forces: They want to move the particle.
Reactive forces: They tend to resist the motion.
3. Identify each force and show all known magnitudes
and directions. Show all unknown magnitudes and /
or directions as variables .

Note : Engine mass = 250 Kg FBD at A
EQUATIONS OF 2-D EQUILIBRIUM

Since particle A is in equilibrium, the net


force at A is zero.
So FAB + FAD + FAC = 0
or F = 0

In general, for a particle in equilibrium, F = 0 or


Fx i + Fy j = 0 = 0 i + 0 j (A vector equation)
Or, written in a scalar form,
Fx = 0 and Fy = 0
These are two scalar equations of equilibrium (EofE). They
can be used to solve for up to two unknowns.
10
EXAMPLE

Note : Engine mass = 250 Kg FBD at A

Write the scalar EofE:


+ Fx = TB cos 30 TD = 0
+ Fy = TB sin 30 2.452 kN = 0
Solving the second equation gives: TB = 4.90 kN

11 From the first equation, we get: TD = 4.25 kN


SPRINGS, CABLES, AND PULLEYS

Spring Force = spring constant * With a


deformation, or frictionless
F=k* S pulley, T1 = T2.
12
EXAMPLE

Given: Sack A weighs 20 N.


and geometry is as
shown.
Find: Forces in the cables and
weight of sack B.
Plan:

1. Draw a FBD for Point E.


2. Apply EofE at Point E to solve
for the unknowns (TEG & TEC).
3. Repeat this process at C.
13
EXAMPLE (continued)

A FBD at E should look like the one


to the left. Note the assumed
directions for the two cable tensions.

The scalar EofE are:


+ Fx = TEG sin 30 TEC cos 45 = 0
+ Fy = TEG cos 30 TEC sin 45 20 N = 0
Solving these two simultaneous equations for the
two unknowns yields:
TEC = 38.6 N
TEG = 54.6 N
14
EXAMPLE (continued)

Now move on to ring C.


A FBD for C should look
like the one to the left.

The scalar EofE are:


Fx = 38.64 cos 45 (4/5) TCD = 0
Fy = (3/5) TCD + 38.64 sin 45 WB = 0

Solving the first equation and then the second yields


TCD = 34.2 N and WB = 47.8 N .
