Static Equilibrium for an Extended Object

In static equilibrium, both the net force and net torque on a body add up to zero.
The conditions for static equilibrium of an extended object are that the net force is and and the net torque by .
In this Demonstration you can vary the forces and moment arm for either forces applied to the object and watch the effect these forces have on the object.
