Static Equilibrium for an Extended Object
Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
In static equilibrium, both the net force and net torque on a body add up to zero.[more]
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.[less]
