1 Statics (MET 2214) Prof. Simin Nasseri Statics of Particles MET 2214

2 Statics (MET 2214) Prof. Simin Nasseri Static Equilibrium for a Particle Objective: To introduce the concept of the free-body diagram for a particle and to show how to solve particle equilibrium problems using the equations of equilibrium. A particle: An object with inertia (mass) but of negligible dimensions. A particle at rest: A particle is at rest if originally at rest or has a constant velocity if originally in motion.

3 Statics (MET 2214) Prof. Simin Nasseri Equilibrium equations for a particle A particle is in equilibrium if the resultant of ALL forces acting on the particle is equal to zero. (Newtons first law is that a body at rest is not subjected to any unbalanced forces). Sum of all forces acting on a particle =

4 Statics (MET 2214) Prof. Simin Nasseri Equilibrium equations in component form In a rectangular coordinate system the equilibrium equations can be represented by three scalar equations:

5 Statics (MET 2214) Prof. Simin Nasseri Free-Body Diagram (FBD): To apply equilibrium equations we must account for all known and unknown forces acting on the particle. The best way to do this is to draw a free-body diagram of the particle. FBD: A diagram showing the particle under consideration and all the forces and moments acting on this particle. This is a sketch that shows the particle free from its surroundings with all the forces acting on it.

6 Statics (MET 2214) Prof. Simin Nasseri Parallelogram Law Copyright of Ohio University Two forces on a body can be replaced by a single force called the resultant by drawing the diagonal of the parallelogram with sides equivalent to the two forces.

7 Statics (MET 2214) Prof. Simin Nasseri Principal of Transmissibility The conditions of equilibrium or motion of a body remain unchanged if a force on the body is replaced by a force of the same magnitude and direction along the line of action of the original force.

8 Statics (MET 2214) Prof. Simin Nasseri Mechanical components String or cable: A mechanical device that can only transmit a tensile force along itself.

9 Statics (MET 2214) Prof. Simin Nasseri Mechanical components Linear spring: A mechanical device which exerts a force along its line of action and proportional to its extension (F = kX). K is constant of proportionality which is a measure of stiffness or strength.

10 Statics (MET 2214) Prof. Simin Nasseri Mechanical components Cables: Cables are assumed to have negligible weight and they cannot stretch. They can only support tension or pulling (you cant push on a rope!). Frictionless pulleys: Pulleys are assumed to be frictionless.

11 Statics (MET 2214) Prof. Simin Nasseri Mechanical components A continuous cable passing over a frictionless pulley must have tension force of a constant magnitude. The tension force is always directed in the direction of the cable. For a frictionless pulley in static equilibrium, the tension in the cable is the same on both sides of the pulley.

12 Statics (MET 2214) Prof. Simin Nasseri Force types Force types: Active Forces - tend to set the particle in motion. Reactive Forces - result from constraints or supports and tend to prevent motion. Active force Reactive force Active force Reactive force

13 Statics (MET 2214) Prof. Simin Nasseri Free Body Diagram (FBD) How to draw a Free Body Diagram: Draw outlined shape - Imagine the particle isolated or cut free from its surroundings Show all forces and moments - Include active forces and reactive forces. Place each force and couple at the point that it is applied. Identify each force: Known forces labeled with proper magnitude and direction. Letters used for unknown quantities. Add any relevant dimensions onto your picture.

17 Statics (MET 2214) Prof. Simin Nasseri Sphere There are two forces acting on the sphere. These are its weight and the force of cord CE. The weight is: W = 6 kg (9.81 m/s 2 ) = 58.9 N.

18 Statics (MET 2214) Prof. Simin Nasseri FBD of sphere This is the way we show the FBD of the sphere: F CE 58.9 N

19 Statics (MET 2214) Prof. Simin Nasseri Cord CE There are two forces acting on the cord. These are the force of the sphere, and the force of the knot. A cord is a tension only member. Newtons third law applies.
